Get a behind-the-scenes look at the tech that makes the magic happen and a sneak peek at some of the exciting new projects in the works. Hack in teams to imagine how the latest augmented reality platforms can be used to expand an exhibit experience beyond the physical world, develop interactive web features and demonstrations of your favorite mathematical topics, or experiment with software development kits (SDKs) for two of the Museum’s breathtaking exhibits, Dynamic Wall and Math Square. Winning projects may be incorporated into the Museum experience!
Creative uses of MoMath exhibit SDKs have a chance to become part of the daily visitor experience, and unique web experiences may be integrated into the Museum's redesigned website, coming soon.
Winning teams in each category will be awarded one-of-a-kind prizes from MoMath's collection of unique pieces developed for Additions: the official shop of the National Museum of Mathematics.
