Fractals seem terribly fashionable right now. Here’s another free fractal event, and unlike other Science Cafés geared more to an adult audience, this one is open to all the family.  

KNME is hosting a free Fractals & Nature Science Café  event and discussion in Corrales on Saturday
April 30, from 10 am till noon.

The event explores how fractals are found all around us in the natural world, and kicks off with a clip from the video Hunting the Hidden Dimension, courtesy of NOVA scienceNOW by PBS.

Dr. James H. Brown, Distinguished Professor of Biology at the University of New Mexico, leads the discussion. Dr Brown will talk about his research and his ideas on why fractal designs crop up so frequently in nature. 

The whole science shebang takes place in a cafe style atmosphere, with casual and open conversation.

While Science Cafés are usually geared toward adults, the organizers tell us that this Science Café is designed for the whole family. In their own words “Parents and grandparents are strongly encouraged to bring their budding engineers and scientists along!”

Make your reservation as although it’s a free event, seating is limited and reservations required.
