Educator Packet


Our exhibit demonstrates how nature has an inherent structure that can be expressed through natural and geometric patterns. These patterns are relevant in science, technology, art and math (STEAM) and help us to understand, manipulate and appreciate the world around us.

While there are many kinds of patterns in the world, most can be placed into six main categories:  Tessellations, Spirals, Symmetry, Branching/Meandering, Explosions and Fractals

For each of these types of patterns, the exhibit has a corresponding room that explains what each pattern is, why it is important, where it is found in nature, and how we have adapted it for our own uses.
