Celestial Mechanics

With a press of a button, metal ball bearings are released and cycle around down a vortex funnel to demonstrate the orbital relationship between heavenly bodies.  

The Random Walk

Two sorting baskets flip back and forth—determining the direction of a meandering pathway of lightbulbs.  

Minimal Surfaces

Watch as six wire wands dip in and out of a soapy bath to create delicate bubble forms.  

Conic Sections

Peer through the viewing portals and see beams of light transformed into complex shapes, scattered across string formations.  

The Probability Machine

Watch as thousands of plastic balls drop along a grid that once settled, creates a bell curve.
