Similar to the way artists and designers turn ideas into tangible works of art, mathematician Laura Taalman, a speaker for The Museum of Mathematics “Math Encounters” series, is bringing abstract mathematics into the third dimension. On Wednesday, July 2, 2014, Taalman will demonstrate how mathematical concepts can be transformed into physical realities using modern technology. Whether the end goal is to investigate new mathematical ideas or create a piece of art, 3D printing draws a flawless parallel between mathematics and the A&D world.

Be a part of the action! All attendants can take home their own 3D printed, mathematical model courtesy of the Museum and Dr. Taalman.

When: Wednesday, July 2, 2014
Where: The National Museum of Mathematics on 11 E. 26th Street
RSVP:, or 646-490-6446
