MathAlive! hosted in Ras Al Khaimah for Families and School Groups

MathAlive! appeared Al Khaimah at HCT’s Women’s Campus 25 March – 18 April.

The traveling exhibition offers visitors the chance to ride a snowboard in a 3D experience, design (and play) their own video games, capture their 360-degree images in a unique interactive, program a Mars rover, and even design custom skateboards for “pop” – the quick, snapping motion that allows a board to do the best tricks. Plus, visitors in Ras Al Khaimah will have the opportunity to test their goalie skills in a new football interactive challenge.

MathAlive! is presented by Raytheon and Higher Colleges of Technology Ras Al Khaimah Women’s Campus, in collaboration with the United Arab Emirates Ministry of Tolerance.

The MathAlive! exhibit uses 40 unique, interactive experiences to transform math from its native form into the fascinating applied worlds of design, engineering, technology and science.

  • Outdoor Action … Adventure Sports
  • Build Your World … Environment
  • Future Style … Style and Design
  • Kickin’ It … Entertainment
