“Bewildering Symmetry… with Origami Collages!”
Friday, June 23 at 6:30 pm ET
If you’ve ever done origami, you’ll know all about symmetry. Except… well… not really! Origami professional Paul Jackson has developed a genre of folding paper squares or rectangles just once, twice, or four times, then combining a number of folded sheets together in symmetrical arrangements to create utterly baffling illusions of interleaving layers and planes that somehow, you can never quite explain. These collages are not only fascinating, but also incredibly beautiful. Learn the basics and leave with your own newly created, unique work of art!
Family Fridays is designed to bring family members of all ages together to enjoy a diverse array of engaging mathematical activities, promoting interest and enthusiasm among kids and adults alike.
Here’s what participants have to say:
“I was very impressed at how such a program could be presented that truly worked for all ages! I, at 68, was as fascinated as the kids. It was fun watching them grabbing what they could and happily keeping up with the activities.”
“Super excellent for all ages — one of best programs ever (not just Family Fridays — all programs everywhere!)”
“Wow! It’s the first time we are attending Family Friday series. We are so impressed! You guys are amazing! Thank you!”
