National Museum of Mathematics (MoMath) and The Story Collider Host Evening of Math-Centric Storytelling
Wednesday, September 10, 8 p.m. at MoMath in Manhattan
WHAT: Science and math surround us, and even when we don’t notice, they touch almost every part of our lives. The Story Collider believes that everyone has a story about science and math, and the best way to tell those stories is to gather with friends and drinks to hear funny, or sometimes heartbreaking, stories told live on stage.
On Wednesday, September 10, the National Museum of Mathematics will partner with The Story Collider for a unique and memorable night of math-centric storytelling delivered by a broad range of speakers, from those who have made math their lives, to those who thought they hated it but later discovered its beauty.
