abstract: Children of different classes of elementary schools in Portugal have participated in a mathematics project which aims at increasing the interest for Mathematics in Portugal together with developing skills for day-to-day problem solving and inter-relating Mathematics with other Sciences and Arts. In this talk we shall present some of the results obtained while exploring several topics related to symmetry. The examples given relate to tiling, kaleidoscopes, animal drawings and cooking.
