The Abel prize winner was in Trondheim yesterday, and I was part of the committee that organized events for kids in connection with the visit. 240 eighth graders came for a competition and a show. I organized the collaborative building of a giant tetrahedron from 1 meter long pvc pipes. It was huge and cool! I also gave an entertaining math show.
In the evening Pam and I attended a dinner at the Archbishop's palace with the Abel prize winner and all kinds of important folks.
