We are out to change the culture. We have enough sports heroes and movie stars. What we need are some science heroes, and some math stars. We’re using large-scale public art to advertise the beauty of math and science, and to showcase the creativity and intelligence of our students.
Our Mission: We use the beauty of fractals to inspire interest in Science, Math and Art.
Our vision is for a world of wonder and curiosity, a culture of scientific inquiry, an appreciation of the interconnections of natural systems and an understanding of their essential nonlinearity. We see a world where everyone is mathematically literate and has a grasp of how math is a powerful tool to help turn their visions into reality.
History: The Fractal Foundation was formed in 2003, as an outgrowth of the Albuquerque based “Chaos Club”. Since then, we have taught fractals to over 24,000 children and 15,000 adults.
