Traveling exhibits : 2theXtreme: MAthAlive! 

Kaitlyn Perot Museum

Our family got to experience the traveling exhibit 2theXtreme: MAthAlive! This was so fun and really showed our kids how much math they use without even realizing it. We experienced snowboarding, captured 360 degree pictures of ourselves, and had a “binary dance party”. What can I say? Who doesn’t love a great dance party any time any place?

Snowboarding at the Perot MuseumThere were over 40 unique interactive experiences which made the math really come to life for us. Video game, sports, fashion, music, and robotics were all represented in a way that really spoke to our kids and a way that made an impact.

We were also able to enjoy one of the 3D films in the Perot Museum’s 297 seat state of the art digital theater ( to view trailers and see the film schedule go to perotmuseum.org) Last time we were there we saw Pandas.

3D Film Perot Museum

It was our daughter’s favorite film and she has loved studying pandas ever since. On this visit our son picked the movie Robots 3D presented by National Geographic. It was really eye-opening to see what it takes to make a “humanoid” robot.  After seeing the trailer for Galapagos 3D, about discovering the Galapagos Islands, I think both all of us were excited to come back for another 3D film here!
