Today's Google Doodle is a fun tribute to the creator of the Venn diagram

Urgh, maths. But fun maths.


“VENN DIAGRAMS? HOW can Venn diagrams ever be fun,” we hear you cry. But trust us, they can be.

Today’s particularly cute Google Doodle celebrates the 180th birthday of John Venn, philosopher and creator of every Junior Cert student’s worst nightmare, the Venn diagram.

It allows you to choose from several categories to create your own diagram, with a cartoon Venn popping up to show you how these things overlap.


The Doodle also contains a little shout out to Commander Chris Hadfield, who appears in cartoon form when you choose the options ‘Musical’ and ‘In Space’.
