I was privileged to attend the 12th Gathering for Gardner. This is a biennial conference celebrating the interests of Martin Gardner.
He penned the Mathematical Games column in Scientific American for 25 years and also wrote about science, skepticism, magic and philosophy.
Here are a few pictures, I’ll post more details later.
Valantine’s Day was a great day for the Science Mill opening in Johnson City Texas.
The Science Mill is a new science museum geared to middle and high school students and their families.
The mission of the museum “… is to ignite the curiosity, ambition, innovation and problem-solving potential of the next generation through an innovative, immersive experience that enhances the community’s understanding of, and appreciation for, science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).”
I was privileged to show both a new Van de Graaff generator and my Lissagraph drawing machine at the opening. Enthusiastic Members of the Texas 4H did a great job of demonstrating the Van de Graaff generator as you can see in the gallery below.
My drawing machine and Van De Graaff generator were temporary exhibits for the opening. My wife, Sally Weber has three holograms which are part of the permanent exhibits at the museum.
Please support the new Museum!
