Abstract

I describe four mathematical designs for EGMO 2020, the European Girls’ Mathematical Olympiad hosted by the Netherlands: an on-stage collaborative activity for the team parade, a sculpture, an animation movie, and a braided puzzle bracelet. All the designs are related and are (also) intended to attract attention to some nice accessible mathematics with interesting open problems.
