Have been working with four Park City, Utah, high school students on projects for Rockwell Collins and Overstock.com – as part of the PCCAPS program. The idea is to have students work on valid projects for corporations and to build experience with professional protocol, new types of software, problem solving, etc.

The “Geomorph,” exhibition date approaches and I’ll be building shape-changing geometrical structures; preparing large high definition LCDs, to display animations of new and ancient geometries, setting up an interactive program designed as a visual and geometrical game of logic; printing out posters that show the geometries and the mathematics behind them, and collecting materials soContinue reading The Leonardo: Everything Changes When Math Meets Art
Congratulations to JPL, and the whole NASA team, on successfully landing the Curiosity Rover on Mars; and thanks for sharing the landing experience on NASA TV last night! Curiosity travelled from the Earth to Mars in about eight months, traveling 352 million miles (569 million km), leaving a rotating and orbiting Earth, to rendezvous with Mars,Continue reading Curiosity Rover Lands On Mars
Do you want to think about geometry in a whole new way? Explore ideas and create amazing designs and dynamic 3D structures? I’ll be presenting old and new geometries that create everything from labyrinths to moon bases at The Leonardo in Salt Lake City, Utah, during October, 2012. The presentation will take the form of a small exhibition/workshop of high-definition animations, 3D structures thatContinue reading The Leonardo, Salt Lake City. When Math Meets Art Everything Changes
Just completed two summer workshops at the Kimball Art Center, in Park City, Utah. The morning sessions were for “Teen Inventors,” aged from 11 to 17 years, and the afternoon sessions were for “Young Inventors,” aged 5 to 10 years. Most inventors completed an invention a day –Continue reading Young Inventors Summer 2012
