About the exhibit


Nature provides us with a mesmerizing tapestry of patterns, from leaves on trees to our own circulatory system. Some patterns are as small as crystal molecules and as large as the Milky Way.

This unique exhibit allows visitors to explore six uniquely designed rooms filled with information, imagery and plants to gain a
better understanding of patterns.

Activity Stations


Along with an extensive variety of plants, flowers and shrubs; interactive displays and video stations are positioned throughout the exhibit to both educate and entertain visitors.

Children can look for colorful  butterfly images throughout the exhibit and see how you can find. For those that like a challenge, try to figure out which patterns they represent.

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.
