Brilliant Live

This is just an idea I have been thinking about. What if Brilliant had live events all over the world? Math rallies in malls. Outdoor problem solving events. Multiple age groups. Prizes. Awesomeness...(which just comes with the territory). Some could even just be spontaneous. Points can be awarded during these live events. Problems can even be created and solved, and challenged during these live events.

Not only would do I think that this idea would get Brilliant out in the open but it would change the way people love math.

Just a thought...

As a teacher I am always thinking of ways I could get this started...

Let me know what you think, The benefits, the costs, and everything else...

(posting raw ideas on the internet is usually a bad idea but I figured I'd give this one a shot)

I would love to see the day when we could have math rallies in a mall, and not be gawked at by the general populace.

I think the key is, especially for for a growing start-up, is to be gawked at. Also those who are actually spending time solving the problem love the opportunity (even if they state and believe otherwise) to prove their understanding to others. Just my belief.
