From the moment I arrived in Valencia Spain I realized even though this city was old and traditional, it was scientifically complex. I peered out my bus window and the modern buildings immediately grabbed me and my face froze in amazement; they were stunning and like nothing I had ever seen before. We were driving by the City of Arts and Sciences, a whole complex of modern buildings that can’t help but to leave you in awe of the science and mathematics that made it all possible.
I was never that great in math and science, but walking around the City of Arts and Sciences had me thinking about how some professions such as Architects and Engineers do actually use it in their every day work. And if it weren’t for math and science these buildings wouldn’t exist. Just look at all of the curves on the Palacio de las Artes – that’s calculus. Numbers transformed into beauty.
