Paper isn’t the first medium most people think of when they imagine sculpture, but it has qualities that help papercraft artists create some of the most incredibly intricate 3D art ever seen. Master paper sculptors like Richard Sweeney, Brian Dettmer and Ingrid Siliakus cut, fold, glue and otherwise transform sheets of paper in various colors, sizes and textures into complex creations that mimic architecture, nature, the human form and subjects that are purely the products of their own fertile imaginations.

Portrait - Collage I adapted this lesson from Deep Space Sparkle about one of my most favorite artists/architects Friedensreich Hundertwasser. I have taught lessons on Hundertwasser's archtecture, but not on his paintings and prints before, so I was so excited to try this out! In 5th grade at Suffield, we talked about the representational and abstract qualities of Hundertwasser's artworks. The students kept this in mind as they worked to try to end up with both types of elements in their artworks as well. You can see the step-by-step process of these collages at Deep Space Sparkle. In my version, we added photos (I encouraged students to try to do a pose that nobody else has done), and then the students tried to really make their photo look like it belonged in the collage.
The Interactive Activation and Competition Network: How Neural Networks Process Information Copyright © Simon Dennis, 1997. * These sections contain some mathematics which can be omitted on a first reading if desired. Introduction The Interactive Activation and Competition network (IAC, McClelland 1981; McClelland & Rumelhart 1981; Rumelhart & McClelland 1982) embodies many of the properties that make neural networks useful information processing models. In this chapter, we will use the IAC network to demonstrate several of these properties including content addressability, robustness in the face of noise, generalisation across exemplars and the ability to provide plausible default values for unknown variables. The chapter begins with an example of an IAC network to allow you to see a full network in action.
How-Tos and Step-by-Step This Easter craft from TV crafter Jim "Figgy" Noonan doubles as a science project, offering an opportunity to show kids the crystallization process at work. To make a fluorescent variation for Halloween, substitute the water and egg dye solution with Glow Water.

Science Museum of Minnesota - Anthropology The Anthropology Department collaborates with other museum staff on anthropology-related exhibits and programming while also maintaining traditional collections-based curatorial and research activities. Staff members work with tribal communities, state and federal agencies, community groups, and other scholars and scientists on projects ranging from ethnographic research and collecting, to archaeological research and fieldwork, to education and interpretation. Current projects and research include: Red Wing Archaeology The Red Wing Archaeology project is an interdisciplinary, multi-institutional project with the goal to collect, study, and care for archaeological collections from this fascinating region.
Lines, Lines, and Fish Bowls Oh My!! We are studying LINES right now and we started this project today. They are not done yet, but I just couldn’t wait! I will post some finished ones next week! We have done the crazy Hair Day project in the past but I thought this would be fun and the kids LOVED it! They had a HUGE VARIETY of materials, paint, markers, colored pencils, stamps, crayons, and, oil pastels Students had to make the lines OVERLAP by stopping and continuing on the other side when it crossed over. Beyond the Bell Curve, a New Universal Law Imagine an archipelago where each island hosts a single tortoise species and all the islands are connected — say by rafts of flotsam. As the tortoises interact by dipping into one another’s food supplies, their populations fluctuate. In 1972, the biologist Robert May devised a simple mathematical model that worked much like the archipelago. He wanted to figure out whether a complex ecosystem can ever be stable or whether interactions between species inevitably lead some to wipe out others. By indexing chance interactions between species as random numbers in a matrix, he calculated the critical “interaction strength” — a measure of the number of flotsam rafts, for example — needed to destabilize the ecosystem.
