MathAlive!, the hands-on exhibit exploring the math behind sports, video games and other everyday activities, is now open at Nebraska’s Strategic Air & Space Museum.
Hundreds of thousands of students across the country have experienced MathAlive! — Raytheon’s traveling exhibition designed to bring to life the real math behind what kids love most: video games, sports, fashion, music, robotics, and more.
Now, students in Nebraska can see what their peers in Washington, D.C., Arizona, Alabama, Texas and Connecticut have already experienced, as MathAlive! has landed at the Strategic Air & Space Museum located near Omaha, Neb . The exhibit will run through January 5, 2014.
The 5,000 square-foot MathAlive! MathAlive! exhibition is composed of 40 unique and interactive experiences across six themed galleries that take math into the applied worlds of design, engineering, technology and science. In each gallery, high-tech, mechanical and multimedia interactive experiences provide challenges that use various types of mathematics as tools to help visitors compete, design, build, optimize and play.
“With each new location it becomes more clear that students can be inspired to become excited about math when they can use it to engage in fun and interactive applications,” said Pamela Erickson, Raytheon vice president of Community Relations. “We look forward to another great turnout in Nebraska.”
MathAlive! is part of Raytheon’s MathMovesU initiative, which aims to inspire students to pursue math- and science-related careers and ensure the continued strength of the American workforce.
Institutional collaborators for MathAlive! include NASA, the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, the National Society of Professional Engineers, the National Engineers Week Foundation, the Society of Women Engineers, and MATHCOUNTS®.
