The Psi Chi Honors Society and the Department of Psychological Science are pleased to present the fourth annual Martin Gardner “Celebration of Mind” at Carthage. 

Every year in late October, people around the world gather to honor the legacy of magician, mathematician, skeptic, puzzler, Lewis Carroll scholar, and science writer, Martin Gardner. This year’s “Celebration of Mind” will explore “Mathemagics!,” using magic, puzzles, and games to delight, instruct, and bring people together in a spirit of fun.

The event will begin with brief presentations on topics related to Martin Gardner’s interests in magic and recreational mathematics. This year’s speakers will include:

Following the presentations, attendees will be encouraged to enjoy some refreshments and interact with hands-on displays featuring illusions, recreational mathematics, magic, puzzles, and more. The evening will culminate with a performance by magician & mentalist, Spidey, in the Student Union Auditorium!
