MathAlive! is designed to answer the age-old question: "Will I ever use all this math they're teaching us?"
       So states an announcement of an exhibit that the Raytheon Company is bringing to the Space Foundation's Discovery Center, 4425 Arrowswest Drive, off Garden of the Gods Road, from Jan. 30 to April 30.
       The interactive exhibit will be in addition to others already in place at the Discovery Center, open Tuesdays through Saturdays. Admission is $10 for adults, $4.50 for children ages 4-17, $1 for children ages 2-3 and free for children under 2. Military discounts are available.
       “MathAlive! is designed to inspire, to spark the imagination, to reveal not only math at work, but the endless possibilities of math,” a press release states. “Designed for families and students, the exhibition brings to life the real math behind what kids love most - video games, sports, fashion, music, robotics, and more - and creates interactive and immersive experiences that bring to life the math at work in each, whether in design, application or use.”
       The Raytheon Company is an international firm specializing in defense, government and cybersecurity markets.
