### Upcoming event

###### Snowflake Workshop: Mathematics of Fractals

**Date:**Thursday, December 4

**Time:**3:30-4:30 p.m.

**Place:**LCB 219

**Organizer:**Vira Babenko

**Description:**A fractal is a natural phenomenon that exhibits a repeating pattern that displays at every scale. They are found in places as small as a cell membrane and those as large as the solar system. Winter holidays are just around the corner, and what can be a better way to welcome them than crafting 3D snowflake-fractals and watching a great documentary "Hunting The Hidden Dimension" (Nova 2008).
