We encourage adults and children of all ages to use puzzles, games, math, and magic to delight, instruct, and bring people together in a spirit of fun and curiosity.
Watch a two minute overview of Celebration of Mind.
Large and small, formal and informal, past Celebrations on all seven continents have ranged from puzzles on the patio to sleight of hand at the Magic Castle, recreational math in the classroom, and interesting conversations in retirement homes.
All of our resources are free to help your event! Download, share, and enjoy. Celebration of Mind now offers a growing repository of resources, tantalizing paths and surprising intersections for all.
We use puzzles, games, and magic to delight, instruct, and bring people together in a spirit of fun, both at annual gatherings and as a year-round repository of resources. As Martin Gardner said, you can learn more when you’re in a state of entrancement, and that’s our guiding principle.
