An interactive and immersive new permanent exhibit that will expose and explain the mathematical patterns that abound in the natural world—from the delicate nested spirals of a sunflower’s seeds, to the ridges of a majestic mountain range, to the layout of the Universe. This fascinating space will envelop visitors within what appears to be an endless pattern—1,600 square feet of it. Dead ends are scattered throughout, and hidden within this approximately 10-minute experience is a small secret room.
