Meet the Makers: Illinois Geometry Lab

The Illinois Geometry Lab is back. You may remember them from the first UC Mini Maker faire when they had quite the display mathematical visualizations. This year they will be back with their new 3D printer which they use for the very interesting and creative purpose of bringing curious mathematical shapes to life.

Paper Polyhedra

They will  also raffle off two 3D-printed copies of Altgeld Hall (home of the math department). And will bring their popular construction paper cutouts for assembling polyhedra.

Altgeld Hall

As they would say:

“The Illinois Geometry Lab (IGL) is a facility at the Mathematics Department focusing on mathematical visualization and community engagement.”
