2017 Festival: Oobleck Olympics!

Oobleck Olympics obstacle course

Oobleck OlympicsThe Mathematical Sciences Research Institute is delighted to announce that the Oobleck Olympics will be a featured event at the 2017 National Math Festival!

The Oobleck Olympics is a hands-on ‘obstacle’ course where contestants slug it out over a range of mathletic hurdles.  Small teams will walk, jump, and skip through a (non-Newtonian) water challenge; compete in a honey dipper egg-and-spoon style race; and shoot smoke rings like William Tell! Competitors will need to mathematically manipulate the forces of nature to win.
