Description

Branching is a growth pattern found everywhere in the natural world. Using natural specimens, students observe, study, sketch, and build models that explore patterns of branching in nature, including trees, leaves, and plants; coral and seaweed; fungi and algae; and lightning. Human-made  constructs connected to branching, such as mapping, urban planning, and circuitry, are also studied. Students use these examples to create a wire sculpture tree incorporating a math and division process that mimics how trees grow in nature.
