Family Fridays:
"Playing with Plato"

Friday, July 16 at 6:30 pm ET (New York)

In person!

Playing with regular polygons (shapes with all angles equal and all sides equal) can be great fun! There are triangles (three sides), squares (four sides), pentagons (five sides), hexagons (six sides)...and so on, forever.  But what if you move into the third dimension?  Suddenly, the story is shockingly different!  Grab some toothpicks, stock up on marshmallows, and strap in for a wild ride through regularity.  Who knows, we may even visit a little bit of hyperbolic space!

This month's Family Fridays features MoMath's 2020-2021 Distinguished Visiting Professor for the Public Dissemination of Mathematics and Rutgers math professor Alex Kontorovich.

This event will take place in person at MoMath at 11 East 26th Street.

All in-person seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

MoMath requests that unvaccinated guests wear masks.

Please arrive 15 to 30 minutes before the event to complete registration.

This event is free, but a $25 donation will help MoMath defray reopening costs as patrons are welcomed back to the physical Museum.
