Crackers, Oranges, and Pringles -- A Family Friday event at MoMath

The Museum of Mathematics is pleased to announce a special Family Friday workshop for parents and kids on Friday, April 26, at 7 pm. Dr. Daina Taimina, mathematical artist, author, and mother of two, will present “Crackers, Oranges, and Pringles” – a creative, hands-on exploration of surfaces with different curvature.

Dr. Taimina, known for creating “hyperbolic crochet,” will start by transforming flat sheets of paper into surfaces with different curvature and then exploring what happens on those surfaces.  For those familiar with two basic crochet stitches – chain and single crochet – she will go on to demonstrate how to crochet various hyperbolic surfaces.

Dr. Taimina’s book, Crocheting Adventures with the Hyperbolic Planes (winner of the 2012 Euler Book Prize), will be available for purchase in Additions, the shop at MoMath, and Dr. Taimina will be available to sign books throughout the weekend (times to be announced). Admission is limited, so register soon for this not-to-be missed special event. This event is appropriate for kids ages 7 and up.

Special pre-program dining menu at SD26 now available for Family Friday participants!
