The Mason Experimental Geometry Lab's experimental approach to pure and applied mathematics leverages visualization and computation to build a better understanding of cutting-edge mathematics and develop new conjectures and theorems.
Faculty and students in the lab work together using a range of tools including parallel computing, 3D printing, virtual reality simulations, and interactive mathematics demonstrations.
Students are encouraged to join the lab early on, and learn how to conduct research and use technology through immersion in active projects, with support from their faculty mentors and the MEGL community.
Stepping outside the lab, we share our approach with thousands of K-12 students in the Fairfax community, by providing small-group activities that emphasize curiosity and exploration in the study of mathematics.
We are welcoming Harry Bray to MEGL this year. He is the new Outreach Director. Before coming to MEGL, Harry was the director of LoG(M), the geometry lab at the University of Michigan. He did his post-doc at Michigan and received his PhD from Tufts. To learn more about Harry, check out his website.
