MathAlive! to appear next in Abu Dhabi for Families and School Groups

MathAlive! will appear in Abu Dhabi at Umm Al Emarat Park 21 Dec. – 3 Feb.

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 Abu Dhabi will have the opportunity to test their goalie skills in a new football interactive challenge.

MathAlive! is presented by Raytheon.

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.

There are six themed main galleries covering more than 500 square metres space:

  • Outdoor Action … Adventure Sports
  • Build Your World … Environment
  • Future Style … Style and Design
  • Kickin’ It … Entertainment
  • Game Plan …Video Games and Other Games
  • Robotics and Space

Visitors can choose videos of people working in a range of fields and industries–including many in the region–and hear how they use mathematics in their professions or crafts.
