Pentominoes have been popularized by the characters in The Wright 3, a popular novel by best-selling author Blue Balliett, who used three-dimensional pentominoes as their inspiration in solving the mystery. During the workshop, children build, design, solve problems and learn to think critically using these classic geometric puzzle pieces. Children will also enjoy The Wright 3 virtual tour, an interactive presentation focusing on The Wright 3 tour of Wright’s Robie House, the setting for the popular book.
This workshop is appropriate for children in grades 4-8.
Pre-registration is required and begins June 1st. Register by phone at 847-324-3149.
