The Museum of Mathematics has been awarded a $2 million grant from Google. The money will be used to support the development of the state-of-the-art museum as well as to create innovative, hands-on math exhibits that will be shared with museums around the world. Glen Whitney, founder and executive director of the Museum of Mathematics, said: “We are grateful to Google for this extremely generous gift. Google’s support will not only help us raise the bar of our own museum, but will also help us create a new repertoire of exhibits that will generate enthusiasm about mathematics in science museums throughout the country and around the world.” Michael T. Jones, chief technology advocate at Google, added: “By transforming the curious learners of today into the innovators of tomorrow, museums perpetuate both creativity and accomplishment.
