Foshay Students Help Construct the Mosely Snowflake Sponge

More than 50 students from the James A. Foshay Learning Center—part of the USC Family of Schools—visited Doheny Memorial Library on Friday, July 20, to help construct the Mosely Snowflake Sponge. With Discovery Fellow Margaret Wertheim on hand to provide guidance, the students folded business cards, assembled them into cubes, and then constructed nearly a dozen modules out of the cubes. Those modules will soon become part of the 3-D fractal model that, with the help of the USC community, is quickly nearing completion.

The finished origami model will be unveiled in Doheny Memorial Library on Thursday, September 20. As work continues on the Mosely Snowflake Sponge, track progress and learn how to get involved on the project's Facebook page or web page
