Secrets of Circles is a highly interactive 2000 sq. ft. exhibition featuring 17 exhibits designed to inspire questions and encourage investigation. Explore the math, science, engineering and culture of circles. Discover what makes the circle the best shape for both pizza and car wheels, and why bubbles, the sun and the iris of your eye are all circles.
Secrets of Circles was conceived of and created by Children’s Discovery Museum of San Jose. It was made possible with major funding from the National Science Foundation and corporate support from KPMG, Fujitsu Computer Products of America and Marvell Semiconductor.
The exhibit is brought to the SEE Science Center with local support from RiverStone Resources, UNH Manchester, Russell Auto Inc., 900 Degrees Pizzeria and Dyna Tune. SEE Science Center Member families and individuals from the community have also contributed to funding this exhibit.
The SEE Science Center is located at 200 Bedford St., Manchester.
