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!

Challenges

Augmented reality at MoMath
Use the latest augmented reality tools and frameworks to add new levels of immersion to the Museum.
Develop an innovative, interactive demonstration of your favorite mathematical concept.
Dynamic Wall at MoMath
Move the wall! Dynamic Wall is a monumental kinetic sculpture waiting for your commands. Be among the first to use MoMath's new SDK to explore the possibilities of this breathtaking exhibit.
Math Square at MoMath
Math Square is the biggest touch screen you've ever seen. Use the brand new SDK and the latest frontend web technologies to create new interactive games and experiences.

Prizes

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.
