Symmetry and Beading Workshop
Date: Wednesday, February 11, 2015
Time: 4:30-5:30 p.m.
Place: LCB 222
Organizer: Anna Romanova
Description: What better way to say “I love you” than with a beaded Sierpinski tetrahedron? Come join the AWM at our symmetry and beading workshop and come away with the perfect present for your valentine this Valentine's Day. We will explore the problem of classifying finite subgroups of the orthogonal group O(3) by realizing each such group as the symmetry group of a cluster of beads, then we will create our own beaded cluster displaying tetrahedral symmetry.
