What to Do

The Mobius StripCut out a strip of paper. Give the strip a half twist and tape its ends together, as shown at right. You have just made a Möbius (MUH-bee-us) strip, a fascinating object created by German mathematician Augustus Möbius.

You can explore the many thing you can do with a Mobius strip Here at the Highlights page, where this image is from.

If you live in the Spokane, Washington area, you can visit the Mobius Science Center. They have moved into the 2nd floor of the downtown library building for the Summer. They will finally be in the power house building overlooking the Spokane River. They have a hands-on display to experiment with Mobius Strips.
