MathAlive! Exhibit Arrives at the Smithsonian

MathAlive! Exhibit Arrives at the Smithsonian

The Smithsonian International Gallery is opening a new exhibit that will leave children excited about math. The mammoth exhibit – 5, 000 square feet– is located in the Smithsonian Castle and gives kids an opportunity to explore popular science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) concepts with interactive activities like a virtual-reality snowboarding race.

The traveling exhibit is expected to make a seven-year tour with stops across the country including the Arizona Science Center in Phoenix, the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, Ala., and the Space Center Houston in Texas.

MathAlive! is sponsored by Ratheon Co., a technology leader specializing in defense and homeland security,  and was made possible through various partners including NASA, the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, the National Society of Professional Engineers, the Society of Women Engineers, and MATHCOUNTS, a competition program for middle schoolers.
