Birrallee 40th year anniversary celebration

Pam's school celebrated their 40th anniversary.  I worked with her class to make a giant fractal tetrahedron as part of the math display for the event.

Kids each made 4 small tetrahedra from paper straws, string, and colored triangles. They assembled their 4 tetrahedra into a larger tetrahedra...


And then groups of 4 of these became even large tetrahedra...


And finally 4 of these became a huge tetrahedron! It has 4x4x4 little tetrahedra in it.




Peter had his last day of school this morning and so came to Pam's school to run the cotton candy machine.


Pam had a million details to take care of, inlcluding the cake table. The cakes were amazing.



I came near the end to give a juggling show, torches and balls. I did my complete ball routine without dropping once, which is extremely rare and a little disappointing.

It threatened to rain all day but it did not. Everything went great!

Kids are now done with school and ready for summer!
