After the live Glow TV event Dr Neil Paterson gave us a tour of the native Scottish plant area at the gardens. Photographs from this tour are in the pattern wiki (Glow username and password required). We also started counted petals for Fibonacci numbers. It worked! Have you tried?
If you have please leave a comment or write a blog post to let us know what you discovered.
These notes, booklets and activities have been provided by Dr Neil Paterson and Sarah Derrick at DCA.

Johanna will invite the young people of Scotland to become a Co-Creator by drawing their own inky picture of a creature which lives on land or in water to create a Glow stampede of fish, flora or fauna which reflects the beauty and diversity of wildlife in Scotland. The creature could be real or imaginary.
Creativity Challenge 3
During week 3 of the ‘Look, capture, create’ interdisciplinary learning experience we will be joined by a scientist/mathematician from Dundee University live in the Dundee Botanic Gardens to learn more about the importance of Scottish Biodiversity and how we can do simple things to help nature survive and grow. We will look in particular at the types and purposes of the beautiful patterns nature creates.

For the final ‘Look, capture, create’ Glow TV broadcast join the learning team at Dundee Contemporary Arts to explore the visual elements – line, shape, form, colour, tone, pattern and texture to create a design to promote Scottish biodiversity. And watch as we reveal and celebrate the Glow Stampede of Scottish fish, flora and fauna, your collaborative artwork.
