Patterns in Nature Classes and Crafts

February 17 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

- Free

Join us for this exciting series of programs all about patterns in nature! Mathematical patterns are all around us, in plants, animals, and even fungi! Knowing where to find them and why they’re there can make being outside in nature even more fun. On each of three consecutive Thursdays, co-director Eleanor Harris, Ph.D., will give a brief talk on one pattern in nature and then we’ll gather around the dining room table and make a craft that displays that evening’s pattern. No mathematical knowledge or crafting experience required, just a little curiosity and creativity! All materials will be provided. We’ll have drinks and snacks as we craft. We will meet on February 17, February 24, and March 3 6-7PM.

We will only offer this program for a minimum of 10 participants, so sign up now and tell your friends! We’ll ask that you RSVP first and once we reach the 10-person minimum we will send an invoice for the program fee.

Cost: $30 ($25 for Friends of the Clifton Institute)
