Pattern Wizardry at Long Island Children's Museum

Event description: Throw on your pattern cape, pick up your magic wand and get ready to fall under the spell of... PATTERNS.

Visitors who enter this magical exhibit will become an “apprentice wizard” as they explore and play with the power of patterns. Presented entirely in rhyme, this wildly whimsical sensory exhibit features four interactive pattern areas: Spiral Spells, Tessellation Station, Branch, Branch and Linear Lab. The exhibition also features a Wizard Library, a computer pattern station where kids can create their own patterns and Symmetry Sorcery, where children investigate how we use symmetry to organize patterns. This bilingual (English/Spanish) exhibit introduces the fundamentals of patterns as the building blocks of our natural and man-made world and as a critical developmental tool for children.
