To Ponder Infinity, and Beyond: Beaver Run

If you're always saying that your kid is way smarter than you, head to the National Museum of Mathematics for its brand new installation, "Beaver Run" — maybe they can explain it to you. This one-of-a-kind permanent exhibit features two beavers traveling at the same speed along a path of tracks and turntables; visitors remotely rotate the turntables to create different pathways and millions of possible patterns. No matter matter how the paths change or where the beavers turn, they will never meet, a fact proven through interactive challenges presented to visitors. Beaver Run illustrates the mathematical concept of the "proof" in a fun and hands-on way. 11 E. 26th St. Flatiron 212-542-0566 Online: <a target="_blank" href="http://momath.org/&quot; target="_blank">momath.org</a> <em>photo: <a target="_blank" href="http://www.yelp.com/biz_photos/national-museum-of-mathematics-manhattan?select=9tXOZpS4Lqi3xx26mJ8qzg&quot; target="_blank">Wilkie J.</a> via Yelp</em>fuck
