The Fibonacci Sequence is a sequence of numbers where each number is the sum of the previous two—i.e., 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34…and so on to infinity. The ratio of one number to the next is approximately 1.61803, which is called “phi”, or the Golden Ratio. It’s not a magical mathematical equation of the universe, but it definitely reflects natural, aesthetically beautiful patterns. The ratio been used as the ideal proportion standard by artists and architects throughout history

Levers are all around us and within us, as the basic physical principles of the lever are what allow our tendons and muscles to move our limbs. Inside the body, the bones act as the beams and joints act as the fulcrums.
According to legend, Archimedes (287-212 B.C.E.) once famously said "Give me a place to stand, and I shall move the Earth with it" when he uncovered the physical principles behind the lever. While it would take a heck of a long lever to actually move the world, the statement is correct as a testament to the way it can confer a mechanical advantage. The famous quote is attributed to Archimedes by the later writer, Pappus of Alexandria. It's likely that Archimedes never actually ever said it. However, the physics of levers is very accurate.
When using a lever to perform work, we focus not on masses, but on the idea of exerting an input force on the lever (called the effort) and getting an output force (called the load or the resistance).

You may have heard of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and mathematics) but really the creativity of the arts should be included. S.T.E.A.M (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and mathematics)
The creative thoughts that drive innovation are often the fundamental to new discoveries in SciTech. If we are to loose our imagination we would most certainly loose our ability to adapt.
London-based design duo Studio Swine has created a large-scale ceramic sculpture for the Eden Project, inspired by a tiny photosynthesising microorganism called cyanobacteria. Weighing in at 20 tonnes and towering at 9m-tall, the curvaceous sculpture is thought to be the world’s largest ceramic artwork.
The “breathing” sculpture called ∞ Blue (Infinity Blue), features 32 cannons that fire out vapour rings scented with the “aromas of primordial worlds” from its surface in tribute the oxygenic photosynthesis process first developed by cyanobacteria three billion years ago.
