Our intuition about how space works comes from living on the surface of a round Earth. This isn't the only way space can be put together--and Einstein's four dimensional universe opens up some intriguing possibilities. Using basics of graph theory and topology we will perform a hands-on exploration of some of the ways space can connect to itself and what this might mean for the future of our universe. You will need space to draw, pencils & rulers, several sheets of A4 paper, scissors.
