A Cold, Creamy Crime

A Cold, Creamy Crime

Have a math night unlike any other! Math Adventure combines math, puzzles, drama, teamwork, and community for a night of adventurous problem-solving that kids will want to come back to over and over again.


This kit, A Cold, Creamy Crime, combines supervillains, police detectives, science, and a top-secret ice cream flavor which may or may not have superhero powers. Kids work in teams to help the local police crack the case, becoming junior detectives and using their math skills - and the clues they reveal - to help save the day and reveal the culprits. 


These kits are the culmination of 10+ years of Math Adventure events in and around the Seattle area. A Math Night Adventures Kit builds on the success and knowledge of MATH ADVENTURE, a non-profit that has been building fun math events for elementary schools in the Seattle area for over 10 years, for thousands of kids. But we maxed out our schedule, so we built kits! (For more information on what Math Adventure is about, please visit www.mathadventure.org.)


Each kit contains:

  • Puzzles for all levels from K through 6
  • Complete instructions on how to build an event—finding volunteers, raising funds, building budgets, and job responsibilities
  • Scripts and narratives for all roles
  • Checklists to keep you organized
  • Online tools, including marketing materials, templates, and helpful videos
