Bring on your artistic eye and geometric genius! Break out the compasses, protractors and rulers. Add color, precision, patience, and – voila!  This Project Week’s goal is to create stunning 2- and 3-D designs for display in our Whitten Math/Science Center. Choose to focus on one or more of several options once you have experimented with each. We will explore line designs to create curve stitching canvases. Carefully folded origami will balance a mobile or be combined in colorful arrays. Islamic tiles will be constructed and connected in exquisite tableaus. Ship your artistic brain with your mathematical brain to create the perfect Project Week Pairing!


Special Considerations

Participants must be willing to follow COVID guidelines.  If a participant, experiences any overlapping CDC symptoms of COVID during the project, the student will be isolated, and the student’s family will be required to pick up at their current location.  The family will bear all the costs associated with student pick-up. CDC's possible symptoms of COVID can be found here.

By selecting the above project(s,) you and your family are accepting the financial responsibility for the cost of the projects.  This includes any unrecoverable expenses incurred if Overlake, or any federal, state or local government forces cancelation of the project, or if you or your family decide not to attend, or your student becomes symptomatic and has to be isolated.
