Saturday STEM (Grades K – 8)

Spring, 2024 Saturday Programs

Virtual Programs

Fun with Fibonacci and Fractals

Saturday, April 20, 2:00 – 3:30 p.m., C.S.T.

Grades 5-6

We will be investigating the world of never-ending fractals via hands-on exploration. The program will dive deeper into the Fibonacci sequence, helping students understand the creation of the golden spiral. Through studying natural phenomena such as flowers and pinecones, students will observe fractal patterns and the golden spiral that exist in the real world. The program will finish with an online STEAM project, having students design their own fractals while exploring the properties that alter fractal construction. Let’s get creative through merging math, art, and nature with fractals! This special program will be led by IMSA STEMbassadors students under the supervision of Center for Teaching and Learning staff.
