Family Fridays at MoMath
Presented by Two Sigma

Next Up

“Hyperbolic Play”

featuring Robert Becker

Friday, January 12
6:30 pm to 8:00 pm

(in person)

What exactly does it mean for something to be curved?  Can an object be negatively curved?  Come explore the world of hyperbolic geometry with shadows, clay cubes, soap films, and more — you’ll even get to build and take home your own negatively-curved sculpture — and learn how to play tic-tac-toe on it!


Family Fridays is designed to bring family members of all ages together to enjoy a diverse array of engaging mathematical activities, promoting interest and enthusiasm among kids and adults alike.

Thanks to the generous support of Two Sigma, this program is free to attendees.


Here’s what participants have to say:

“I was very impressed at how such a program could be presented that truly worked for all ages!  I, at 68, was as fascinated as the kids.  It was fun watching them grabbing what they could and happily keeping up with the activities.”

“Super excellent for all ages — one of best programs ever (not just Family Fridays — all programs everywhere!)”

“Wow!  It’s the first time we are attending Family Friday series.  We are so impressed!  You guys are amazing!  Thank you!”
