"Build a Hat Tiling!"

with Chaim Goodman-Strauss

Friday, June 21
6:30 pm to 8:00 pm

(in person)

You may have heard about the newest discovery in mathematics: the Hat tile.  Now be part of history in the making by assembling a giant Hat Tile Floor at MoMath!  Will it be a world record?  The group construction will be led by MoMath's Outreach Mathematician, Chaim Goodman-Strauss, one of the team members that brought the Hat, the first “aperiodic monotile,” to the world.  This shape can be fit together to cover a never-ending surface – but only in a way that will never exactly repeat!
