Here’s something that Time Warner Cable is actually doing right: The corporation has partnered with the National Museum of Mathematics (MoMath) to host events in hopes of getting kids excited about math. Starting this Friday, the fun math-themed events (called Family Fridays) will be held every Friday at MoMath, starting at 6:30 p.m. and will be free to everyone.

“This is yet another way in which Connect a Million Minds is showing kids that science, technology, engineering and math can be fun by introducing them to exciting, informal learning opportunities outside the classroom,” John Quigley, the regional vice president of Time Warner Cable, said in a press release. Some ways MoMath is making math fun is by incorporating it into card games, puzzles and tricks, which will be performed by mathematician Colm Mulcahy.
