Experience MathAlive! at Glazer Children’s Museum, located in downtown Tampa, Florida.
Open May 27, 2017 – July 9, 2017
Presented Nationally by
MathAlive!®, the one-of-a-kind interactive math and science exhibit, presented nationally by Raytheon Company, is traveling to military family communities and venues that serve them in 2017 and 2018, including Tampa and Glazer Children’s Museum.
Perfect for tweens, this exhibit brings S.T.E.M. (Science Technology Engineering and Math) to life as kids experience real math at work in sports, robotics, music, dancing, gaming, and more. MathAlive!, a 5,000 square foot immersive exhibit and the largest ever at Glazer Children’s Museum, is designed to inspire, spark the imagination and reveal the endless possibilities through math.
In MathAlive!, you’ll ride a snowboard in a 3D experience, design (and play) your own video game, capture your 360-degree image in a unique interactive, jump into a fractal dance party, and even design a custom skateboard for “pop” – the quick, snapping motion that allows a board to do the best tricks. Test your engineering and city-planning skills on a large-scale eco bridge and take on different engineering roles as you design a more sustainable infrastructure for a city. The exhibit is accompanied by mentor videos throughout – vignettes about the powerful careers fueled by math.
