Family Fridays at MoMath: Math, rhythmic patterns, and optical traces

Family Fridays at MoMath- Starry Night with Ethan Bolker

Dec 2 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Recurring (see all)

An event every month that begins at 6:30 pm on day First of the month, repeating until Jan 6, 2023

Suggested Ages: All

FREE

Join Grammy award–winning percussionist Will Calhoun for an evening of interactive rhythm, movement, and art. Playing off his inventive artwork (now on display in Composite, the gallery at MoMath), families will first observe the mathematical patterns of independence created using light-up drumsticks, then make their own complex patterns, keeping the rhythmic beat as the streaks of light embedded in each pattern create dazzling traces in the air.

Family Fridays is designed to bring family members of all ages together to enjoy a diverse array of engaging mathematical activities, promoting interest and enthusiasm among kids and adults alike.

Also available online.
