NumbersAlive! is the brainchild of D.C.-based statistician Rebecca Klemm, a.k.a. "The Number Lady."

Next month's Arts on Foot festival marks the debut of NumbersAlive!: a new, local brand of toys, books and films teaching young people how numbers relate to history, art and culture. It's the brainchild of self-professed "math geek" Rebecca Klemm. Rebecca Sheir visits Klemm's studio to learn why Zero is wild about the Hirshhorn Museum... One can't get enough of the Washington Monument... and Seven adores All's Well That Ends Well.

[Music: "NumbersAlive!: It's Cool to be Numerical in America" by Jeremy Young from The Team Ten Tour of Washington, D.C.]
