Seattle Universal Math Museum (SUMM) sparks each and every person to love math. We take you on a math journey, creating opportunities for exploration, discovery, and growth.
Seattle Universal Math Museum (SUMM) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization creating a dynamic museum in the Seattle area to house engaging math exhibits, hands-on experiences, programs, and play areas to stimulate inquiry, ignite creativity and curiosity, and reveal the wonders of mathematics through play and exploration.
Imagine experiencing math in a 3D and hands-on way that feels like play. Active and visual learning increase engagement, make strong connections, and create positive emotional experiences. A museum dedicated to math shows how math is connected to everything - it’s universal - the foundation of STEM, and is part of nature, art, music, and almost every aspect of the world around us.
By making math accessible for all, SUMM will create new opportunities for learners in their formative years, when the introduction of the universal applications of math can make a lifetime impact on their personal and professional lives, leading to exponential impact on their communities and the world.
