Come enjoy a day of fun at the Math Midway's worldwide debut as
part of the World Science Festival Street Fair on June 14 in
New York City's Washington Square Park. Play with giant geometry puzzles and
 Ride a squarewheeled tricycle (how can the ride be so
smooth?)
 Experience the mysterious harmonograph (how does it create
those wild images?)
 Play with lightbending mirrors in the mathematical Fun
House (can you create your own mindbending pattern?)
After the Science Festival, Math Midway will become a
traveling exhibit. Find out more about its parent organization,
the Math Factory, here:
