A Mirror Maze: Numbers in Nature


Feb 22 - Sep 3


Science World at TELUS World of Science, 1455 Quebec Street, Vancouver




You’ll never look at the world in the same way again! Created by the Museum of Science and Industry (MSI) in Chicago, A Mirror Maze: Numbers in Nature, is an interactive and immersive exhibition that exposes and explains the mathematical patterns that abound in the natural world. From the delicate nested spirals of a sunflower’s seeds to the layout of the universe, this exhibition provides a unique perspective on our daily surroundings.

The centerpiece of the exhibition is an 1,800 square foot elaborate mirror maze in which you can navigate a seemingly infinite repeating pattern of mirrors. Interactive elements throughout A Mirror Maze: Numbers in Nature allow for hands-on learning, providing evidence that math is all around us in everyday life and revealing the beauty of our world through numbers.

Visiting with a Grade 3/4 class? Consider reserving Patterns and Proportions, a school workshop designed to complement this exhibition. Available April–June 2019.
