2theXtreme: MathAlive! is designed to inspire, spark the imagination and reveal not only the math at work, but the infinite possibilities of math. The exhibition brings to life all the mathematics behind what kids love most - video games, sports, fashion, music, space, robotics and more. Innovative technologies and hands-on activities create interactive and immersive experiences that will spark a passion for math and show you the formula for fun.
In this 5,000 square foot exhibition, you can freestyle on a snowboard, develop your own video game, attempt an Ollie on a custom skateboard, capture your 360-degree image, challenge a friend in a mountain bike race, operate simulations of NASA's latest robotics and even design infrastructure for an ecologically sustainable city through nearly 40 unique, interactive experiences. MathAlive! brings math into the worlds of design, engineering, technology and science.
Six themed areas with hands-on discovery reveal the relevancy of math to real life: "Outdoor Action," "Build Your World," "Future Style," "Kickin' It," "Game Plan," and "Robotics and Space." Throughout the exhibit, visitors will be accompanied by fun and energetic virtual guides - the BotZ. With quirky personalities and kid-friendly language, these three math-loving virtual guides make mathematical concepts more accessible to younger visitors. Along the way you'll meet professionals, visionaries and inspiring personalities from a variety of fields and learn how they use math everyday.
