2017 Winter Solstice

Thursday, December 21, 6:00 pm — 8:00 pm at the Flatiron Plaza

Join MoMath and the Flatiron Partnership as we celebrate the winter solstice with a giant group construction of Solstice Spirals, a reflective dynamic sculpture. In this Fibonacci-inspired design (based on the work of John Edmark), every piece is exactly the same shape as every other piece, but each consecutive piece is slightly different in size. Start with the tiniest piece and see how quickly the pieces grow as we use the golden angle to build the very same pattern found in sunflowers, pinecones, and roses. Don’t miss your chance to participate in building this kinetic sculpture and bring your camera — you won’t want to miss this beautiful mathematical photo op.
