Event description

Description

Paper engineering meets mechanical movement in this unique math-making experience!

Explore the mathematics of curves before folding a paper hyperbolic paraboloid to visualise a flock of hungry birds. STEAMpop's 'flat to form' experience allows your thinking hands to transform 2D to 3D incorporating metaphor and movement. See how complex mathematical concepts can create simple pleasures in making and moving.
