Schools & Colleges
We offer a plethora of interactive learning experiences, that cover a host of different subjects. Workshops last from ½ day tasters to full week-long courses and can be tailored to suit different age groups and educational levels. By engaging with our creative nature, we can make complex subjects easy to understand.
Drawing with a compass looks just like child’s play, yet we should remember that, when Galileo invented it, a vast acceleration in our understanding of the Universe was ensued. The compass is not just a drawing tool, it is a scientific instrument, similar to the computer of the modern world. Our ancestors used a compass to chart the skies above and the oceans below. Now, we bring back the magic of this forgotten technology, by applying its principles to everything from the Atom, to the Universe at large, and everything in between.
Geometry is by its very nature imbued in a tapestry of numbers and ratios. By exploring how different shapes are constructed, we can appreciate the quality of the ratios that comprise it. Square and square root numbers are found throughout scientific formula, and the observable universe. By understanding their geometric foundations we are able to develop a clearer understanding of many complex scientific concepts.
From the Micro to the Macro, one thing that prevails throughout the whole universe is geometry. As the spherical planets and stars circle through their orbits, to the tiny electrons found surrounding the atomic nucleus, and even the electromagnetic waves, all contain some kind of geometric aspect. Even the nature of the Kilometre and the Second are derived from geometricians, who defined the system of measurements used by science today. Geometry provides a fun and interactive medium for students to explore a wealth of physical phenomena, from the nature of electromagnetic waves, to Blackholes.
This branch of science has a reputation for long and difficult words for different chemical processes. However, by gaining a clear understanding of he Periodic Table, that lies at the heart of all chemistry is key to further progress in this field. To this end, we have designed a fun and interactive course that explores elements 1 to 88. These incorporate 2D and 3D geometry, as well as music. By utilizing both tactile and auditory learning, it has already been noted to improve the overall outcome for the learner.
Biology & Ecology
The miracle of life has been studied intensively, so presently we understand many of the processes involved, both inside and outside the body. From DNA and Cellular functions to ecologic cycles that sustain life, we find intricate processes at work. Upon closer examination, we find they are often expressed through molecular geometry. By extending this notion we have created a simple geometric map that explains the 5 ecological cycles, and their relationship to biological life. More advanced courses delve into various cellular functions and explore the first three periods of elements. This course also aims to deepen the student’s appreciation of the importance of environmentally friendly and sustainable practices.
Art & Design
Within the nature of all kinds of art forms, such as Architecture, Paintings to photography, beauty, and harmony is reflected in accordance with the Golden Ratio. By understanding these and other design principles, the students can develop a toolkit that will serve them in the creation of their own imaginative works. Workshops can last from 1 day to 1 week, and cover both 2D and 3D geometry and ratios, as well as fractals, spirals, and other transformations.
Philosophy & Religious Studies
When considering the non-objective reality, we find that the great philosophers of old, such as Plato, and Archimedes turned to the practice of Sacred Geometry. Similar perspectives can be drawn from Samkhya (yogic) philosophy, that is firmly grounded in the concept of number. To engage with these subjects in a fun and creative way, we have produced a series of practical courses that explore different metaphysical views. Many of these concepts, such as the Dharma Wheel, have their root in ancient Scripture. These sacred texts form the basis of religions, who have incorporated geometric images into their ontology. Each symbol contains information that helps unlock the mind towards understanding ideas that are often difficult to express using words alone. Geometry provides the perfect intersection between the quantifiable (regular form), and non-quantifiable (pi, circle or sphere). Through the use of metaphor, the students are encouraged to reflect on themselves, and their place within the cosmos.
