What You'll Do:

Some people know science is fun. Others need to be convinced. How to Catch a Mouse is a live show that has entertained thousands of audiences with math, science, and art! Balloons are used to construct a Rube Goldberg-style mouse trap intended to solve the problem of a mouse on the loose. Discovering how machines work and the eagerness to set a trap in motion make this an enjoyable show for everyone involved! Sit back, hang out, and watch the performance. The performer will try to answer questions typed in the chat, with more live discussion after the show.


About the Facilitator:

Airigami Founder and Creative Director, Larry Moss is full of hot air and visionary ideas. He combines the two with balloons, and twists them into community-building art experiences. In his role with Airigami, Larry leads a team of artists who create large-scale installations, illustrations, and experiences entirely out of balloons — from small single sculptures to stadium-sized, record-breaking installations. Drawing on his background in entertainment, applied math, and education, and wearing an entirely different hat, Larry has founded Teaching Artists ROC — a nonprofit organization that focuses on connecting teaching artists with schools, libraries, rec centers, and senior centers to present creative STEAM programming.
