Zoom in to patterns smaller than atoms, or out to see arrangements bigger than the universe. Level one will be introduced to the concept of scale and count objects in our universe using small numbers (such as moons around planets) and larger numbers (like stars in the galaxy). Level two will cover patterns and various scales in the universe. Level three will examine the occurrences of fractals in the universe, how the simplest equations can produce them, and Newton’s and Kepler’s laws.
