Have Some Winter Crafting Fun With These Science Snowflakes

| |

The Franklin Institute has some innovative snowflake designs you can download and cut out featuring mostly notable scientists and a few science oriented patterns.  You can download a design with Benjamin Franklin and his kite to celebrate his self-reported kite in a thunderstorm experiment.  Did you also know that Benjamin Franklin invented swim fins?  There’s a snowflake design for that, too.  A few of NASA’s “human computers” that worked during the early days of the space program have designs: Dorothy Vaughan, Katherine Johnson, and Mary Jackson.   For more notable women scientists, there is a dedicated  Women in Science snowflake patterns section.  Jane Goodall, Nikola Tesla, Rosalind Franklin, Thomas Edison, Grace Hopper, Albert Einstein, Marie Curie, Stephen Hawking, and Sally Ride round out the current list of available snowflake designs for scientists.

More patterns are being added on a rolling basis.  For patterns not featuring a specific person are limited to a telescope, the shuttle Discovery, the Erlenmeyer flask, and an astronaut.
