Are you a hot shot with a hula hoop? To kick off Secrets of Circles, we want you to oil up those rusty hips for Hula Hoop Hoopla!

About Secrets of Circles
Secrets of Circles is designed as a hands-on exhibit for both kids and adults to learn about sophisticated mathematical and engineering concepts in a fun and easy way! This exhibit shows just how important circles are in daily life. Circles are everywhere, from the wheels on our cars, to the clock on the wall, to the tortilla on the diner plate!
At Secrets of Circles, circle around the compass table to draw perfect circles on a glow-in-the-dark table, gear up at our gear table to make your own mechanical creation, and shop in our pretend market to shop for onions, pulleys, and all things circular, plus much more!
