Fibonacci, Fractals & 4-D

In this hands-on, STEAM-focused math camp we will be exploring the geometric foundations of number patterns as we spiral into the Fibonacci sequence and connect "Phi-n Art" to the Golden Mean. We will follow imaginary numbers deep into Fractals, build shadows of the fourth dimension, and explore art of fractional dimensions. We will discover logarithms, play Angry Birds equations, walk limits, make polygon polynomials, build Platonic Solids, and more. Join us for this exciting camp and you'll never see math the same way again! STEAM: Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math.
