What fits inside a cube? How are characters and other symbols created from pixels? What does the Pythagorean theorem help with? Mathematics is present in everyday life – even if it is often not directly visible. The new hands-on exhibition “Fascination of Mathematics” at the Mercedes-Benz Museum makes mathematical laws and phenomena comprehensible in a simple and fun way. It runs from 1 to 30 October 2022 and has transformed the CAMPUS on Level 0 of the Museum into an exciting experiential laboratory.

Children's program at the Mercedes-Benz Museum.

The exhibition consists of various stations with more than 30 experiments. They are the most popular exhibits at the Mathematikum Gießen, the world’s first mathematical hands-on museum. All exhibits are interactive. Visitors approach a variety of mathematical topics in a fun way. Action and concentration, doing and thinking are required, accompanied by aha-moments, joy and plenty of amusement.

The fastest group to finish is the winner, and as a memento all the kids receive a certificate during the prize ceremony.
