The earth is spherical but maps are flat. How does this work?
For hundreds of years, cartographers have made the world flat. In recent years, these same techniques have been used to create 3D art and virtual worlds. In this session we will explore some of the mathematical techniques involved as students explore both two and three dimensional figures, transformations and projection.
Suitable for Stages 4–5.
This workshop is part of the Science Festival at the Australian Museum, which brings exciting discoveries and practical science to life with a unique program of hands-on activities, talks and explosive workshops, with a wide coverage of scientific fields and school curriculum links.
When you arrive at the Australian Museum you will find Ellie or one of our event coordinators (in a bright orange shirt) and our lovely volunteers (yellow shirts) waiting to greet you. Please see an event coordinator before going into the Museum for your activity.
For school bookings only. Minimum 15 students. Times subject to change. Check the event timetable here for up to date session times.
