Saturday, September 17 and Sunday, September 18 at 2:30 pm ET (New York)

Appropriate for ages 8 and up.

(in person)


Dive into the world of mathematical mime in this special, hour-long session.  Join Tim Chartier, who has delighted audiences across the United States and in countries such as Japan, Panama, and the Netherlands, as he performs several sketches and shares some behind-the-scenes insight on performing mime.  Learn the secrets of some basic mime illusions and see how these illusions incorporate mathematical thinking and can even be used to introduce and teach mathematics.  Mime + math = fun!

Participants should wear comfortable clothing that allows for a range of movement.
