|Event:||Teen Summer Workshop: Fleas, Fractals, and Physics: Describing Nature with Science, Math and Art - Session 1|
|Date:||Monday, June 25, 2012|
|Time:||9:00 AM to 12:00 PM|
For Grades 7, 8, and 9. Classes will be daily from Monday, June 25 - Friday, June 29, 9am-noon. $165 per student, $135 for members of The Leo.
Fractal geometry is everywhere in nature! Take a close look at ferns or clouds and notice the repeating geometric patterns. A growing understanding of the mathematics behind fractals has led to a deeper understanding of nature and is now stimulating inspiration and innovation across disciplines: from filmmakers and fashion designers to physicians and researchers.
Students will observe fractals in nature and create their own designs based on their interpretation of the natural world. As an application of the physical sciences, we will also use the chaos theory to create a moving object using commonly discarded items, circuits, wires, and motors.
Space is limited! Contact Jen Cassidy via e-mail or at (801) 531-9800 extn. 131 to reserve a spot for your teen!
