MoSAIC Festival brings together art, STEM: Join us Nov. 14-15!


Coming soon! A MoSAIC festival celebrating Mathematical connections in Science, Art, Industry, and Culture, will take place on the UNL campus in the Nebraska Union on Nov. 14-15. The festival is free and open to the public.

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln is partnering with the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, the Bridges Organization, and the Simons Foundation to bring a MoSAIC Festival to Lincoln. The festival will celebrate the Mathematical connections between Science, Art, Industry and Culture and will include fun activities such as hands-on workshops, engaging talks, an art exhibit, short films and informal exchange.

The festival is tentatively scheduled for 10 a.m. – 6:30 p.m. Workshops scheduled in the morning and early afternoon on Saturday, and on Sunday are especially intended for younger audiences (middle-level through high school students); Saturday late afternoon sessions will feature more sophisticated content aimed at higher level audiences.

Featured presenters include David Reimann (Albion College, Mich.), Violeta Vasilevska (Utah Valley University), Reza Sarhangi (Towson University, Md.) and the renowned Chris Palmer (Digital Fabrication Lab Manager UC Berkeley). Presentation topics will include origami, M.C. Escher, tessellations, mosaic designs, geometry and design, ceramics, quilting and more.
