Life summed up
MathsAlive exhibition at Gravity Discovery Centre looks at numbers in things kids love.
AN interactive exhibition at the Gravity Discovery Centre will bring maths to life through activities children enjoy the most.
Raytheon’s MathsAlive exhibition, which aims to inspire and reveal the possibilities maths offers, will be at the Gingin science hub from July 14 to November 7.
The 465sq m exhibition explores the real maths behind video games, sports, fashion, music and robotics through interactive and immersive experiences.
Visitors can ride a snowboard in a 3D experience, capture a 360-degree image, jump into a fractal dance party and design a skateboard for “pop” - the snapping motion that allows a board to do better tricks.
The exhibit will take math from its native form into the applied worlds of design, engineering, technology and science.
People can also explore and operate simulations of NASA’s latest robotics, including Curiosity Rover, and learn how engineers design more sustainable infrastructure.
