“[E]xplore the intersection of magic and mathematics with a dazzling demonstration of seemingly impossible tricks that involve secret mathematics. Various trick methods will be explored, as well as the fascinating background on how magic tricks are created. … Part show, part lecture, this special events brings a former world champion of sleight-of-hand to MoMath for an evening of numbers, magic, and entertainment.”
We love magic – and the focus on how it melds with math makes it extra enticing!
The event is part of MoMath’s “Six Series” – which celebrates the museum’s 6th birthday, and is hosted by Manjul Bhargava, Fields Medalist and Distinguished Visiting Professor.
