Arizona Science Center Mathematical AdventureArizona Science Center Mathematical Adventure

The Arizona Science Center (AZSC) Mathematical Adventure is a sequence of activities that add a mathematical twist to an otherwise normal tour. During this adventure, the reader is encouraged to complete various challenges while walking throughout the center. These fun activities can range from finding how many square inches of skin you have to lying down on a bed of nails (we promise it won't hurt!)
