The Illinois Geometry Lab
Date:February 15, 2013 - 12:00pm
The Illinois Geometry Lab is primarily a research organization that creates opportunities for undergraduates to work with graduate students and professors on cutting edge research that requires or benefits from visualization. From an engagement standpoint, our main focus is extension. We like to take what we develop in the lab, both skills and content, and make it accessible to our community. The Illinois Geometry Lab (IGL) seeks to spark interest in mathematics through showing the creative side of mathematics, in particular, by visualizing and fabricating mathematical concepts using a hands-on experimental approach. We have worked with schools in our community both in our lab and their classrooms. We have also brought our material to the community at large through the Science at the Market booth at the Urbana's Farmer Market.
