The game helps to teach visitors, especially younger ones, about simple graphs and reading the X and Y axis, coordinates, quadrants, origin, and basic memorization. These are useful skills, as many younger visitors are learning the same principles in their math classes during the school year.
HRNM Education Staff, interns, and volunteers had a great time setting up and conducting the game for visitors this past week and 4th of July weekend. Hundreds of visitors participated over the past week, as family members took on family members (and sometimes our HRNM Staff). Come on down and see for yourself! We will be playing this periodically this summer.
