Did you know that the National Museum of Mathematics, also known as MoMath, is right here in NYC? Well, now you do, and they have their 5th in-person math festival coming soon. It takes place on August, the 14th from 10 am to 4 pm at the Fosun Plaza at 28 Liberty St.
Even if you are not really into math, the NYC Math Festival is an event that will be so much fun for the kids and those who are kids at heart, and it is free! You don’t even need to register. All you have to do is just show up and enjoy. Here is a little list of some of the really cool things to do:
Slicing shapes with lasers
Giant mazes to explore
Design your own roller coaster
Not to mention the giant-sized mind-bending puzzles the kids get to play with, like Formula Morph, Play Truchet, and Twist-n-Roll.
Don’t miss the fascinating geometric sculptures designed by Anton Bakker to marvel at. You can check them and some other of the world’s extremely intriguing art and architecture in a special augmented reality exhibit.
World-famous mathematician David Reimann will be there, and you can help him build a huge geometric sculpture that will require hundreds of pieces. All you need to do to help is count to 6 or put a rope through the hole.
The Lab for Developing Minds at the NY University is also getting involved. Contributing games that allow your kids to build a city, speed sorting, plus they are having raffles and some short, interactive animations that will delight your child’s mind.
So don’t miss out on the NYC Math Festival on Saturday, August the 14th. It really is for kids of all ages.
