This paper describes the creation of an interactive, hands-on geometry exhibition “Discover the Art of Math.” The exhibition was created by a team of science center and university specialists from Nordic and Baltic countries in 2012. It became a traveling exhibition accompanied by a 4D Frame workshop. On the basis of this exhibition and workshop, Helsinki University studied the effects informal education has on motivation to study and attitudes towards science.
