BMCM+AC Presents: Hands-on STEAM Workshop with Mark Hanf

In this multimedia and hands-on workshop, participants will explore the elements of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) and construct the building blocks of nature using a new 3D modeling toy called FLEXISTIX. This half-day, family workshop is open to all ages and perfect for middle grades students. Since antiquity, humans have recognized geometric patterns in the natural world. Geometry (Geo + Metry) literally means “Earth measurement”, and beautifully illustrates connections between vastly different scales of creation. Becoming fluent in the universal language of geometry allows one to read the book of nature on the journey of life and experience a profound connection to its wonder along the way. Whether you are already a math whiz or could use some inspiration – join us and prepare to have your mind blown and and your eyes opened to the beauty and mystery of geometry. “I am not trying to copy nature. I am trying to find the principles she’s using.” – R. Buckminster Fuller “Mathematics is the language with which God has written the universe.” – Galileo “The knowledge of which geometry aims is the knowledge of the eternal.” – Plato
