Folding in Geometry
Friday, July 19, 7:00 pm
Join the Museum of Mathematics as it presents a very hands-on Family Friday event. Wendy Zeichner and Aldo Putigano of OrigamiUSA, the largest origami organization in the country, will take visitors on a tour of the mountains and valleys of paper folding. Make a piece of paper pop up into a frog; interconnect some paper squares and make a magic star; experiment with shape and color and make something beautiful to take home. Through origami, parents and children alike will explore the geometric properties of objects and how a line here and a line there can result in…a lion here and a lion there. For further information and to register, visit origami.momath.org.
August 4-6, NYC
