National Math Festival

Special Event | May 4 | 11 a.m.-3 p.m. |  Lawrence Hall of Science

 Lawrence Hall of Science (LHS)

Join us on May 4th at the Hall as we become a Zometool Bubble Station, as part of the National Math Festival! Can you imagine using a bubble wand and dish soap to make a square bubble? How about a cubic, or spiral, or saddle-shaped, or wormhole, or even parabolic-shaped bubble? With the Zometool Bubble Stations, everyone from young kids to kids at heart will find delight in exploring how the principle of “minimal surfaces” not just makes the round soap bubbles we all know from our childhood, but also—with differently shaped Zometool “bubble frames”—creates geometric soap bubbles of many surprising forms.

This event is free with admission, free for Members.
