# STEAM Unit: Fabulous Fibonacci

Description

In this STEAM activity pack, students put some of what they have learned during the Fabulous Fibonacci presentation into action by creating a Fabulous Fibonacci artwork.
Use this alongside the presentation where students learn about the Fibonacci sequence, when it was discovered, the pattern behind it, and how it has influenced mathematics and design for hundreds of years.
