    Family Fridays at MoMath presented by Time Warner Cable: Connecting with Geometry

    Friday, September 25, 6:30 p.m.

    At the NATIONAL MUSEUM OF MATHEMATICS

    Use modular origami to create elegant constructions out of multiple pieces of paper, just by folding, overlapping and arranging, and then see how the right pressure can make these seemingly stable shapes flutter apart. The folding is easy; the assembly is the challenge. What folded forms help you craft these space-filling butterfly balls? Join geometric artist Hans Schepker to discover the tricks of these compound paper creations. This presentation is free to attendees, as part of Time Warner Cable’s Connect a Million Minds campaign. Free admission; registration required.
