Another bit of #WildScience
Remember to use the #wildscience
hashtag to share your love of science and nature this week! This one from @instacavallo
Here in Australia, it's currently #NationalScienceWeek,
have been running a campaign focussing on people's appreciation of #WildScience.
Today I have been thinking about patterns in nature. As a kid I learned about the #fibonacci
sequence, the #goldenspiral
I couldn't believe these inconceivable patterns occurred naturally in nature. I am still fascinated by them, and today in my reading I found out that there is scientific evidence that these repeating patterns are so aesthetically pleasing that they can lower your stress level. Time to get my ferns into the office! Seriously though, people think maths is boring or too hard (ok I find it really hard), but just look at some of the beautiful explanations maths has given us for the natural world. Never lose your curiosity and wonder. The day I do will be the day I die.
