Family Fridays at MoMath
Presented by Two Sigma

Next Up

"Origami Puzzles"

with Francesco Mancini

Friday, July 19
6:30 pm to 8:00 pm

(in person)

Join origami artist and math enthusiast Francesco Mancini for a hands-on workshop that combines paper-folding and puzzling.  Learn how to make the pieces of a variety of brainteasers and then try to find the solutions.  Both the folding sequence and the finished shapes will have interesting mathematical properties, so be prepared to exercise both your fingers and your mind!


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!”
