Scientist and specialist in recreational mathematics Martin Gardner passed away on May 22, 2010. He wanted no memorials, but he expressed a desire for the Gatherings for Gardner to continue.
In this spirit, the Gathering 4 Gardner Foundation will celebrate Martin’s life and work, and continue his pursuit of a playful and fun approach to mathematics, science, art, magic, puzzles, and all of his other interests and writings. We encourage everyone to bring a magic trick, puzzle, recreational mathematics problem or story about Martin to share at this event.
The first Martin Gardner Global Celebration of Mind Gathering took place in different locations around the world on October 21, 2010, which would have been Martin’s 96th birthday. Continuing with the tradition, the second and third took place on or around October 21st in 2011 and 2012. The fourth annual event will happen on or around Monday, October 21st, 2013, and TechShop Pittsburgh is hosting its first annual Celebration of Mind.
This is event is open to the public, but please RSVP here to let us know you're coming.
