Art of Science

The objective behind The Art of Science is a creative discovery of proportion in geometric forms found in nature. Using materials provided in the workshop and with Nature as a model, the children will explore 2 dimensional compositions and build 3-Dimensional objects that possess the Golden Proportion or follow the Fibonacci Sequence. Rather than “learning” abstract concepts such as Ratio and Proportion in a classroom, the children will discover their presence and role in the creation of things. The children will use basic scientific and mathematical concepts to create their own physical works of art. This unique workshop unites three diverse fields even as children enjoy themselves with the materials on hand and an exploration of science and math in the most imaginative ways.
