Media report on SunRule sculpture installation at Webster Park

News Center Maine and WABI-TV (channel 5, Bangor) reported on a new interactive math learning lab in Orono’s Webster Park called SunRule, which combines math with art using rays of sunlight to explore multiplication and division. Eric Pandiscio and Justin Dimmel, associate professors of mathematics education at the University of Maine College of Education and Human Development, invented the sculpture with the help of Greg Ondo, associate professor of art at UMaine. Pandiscio and Dimmel also worked with the UMaine Office of Innovation and Economic Development’s MIRTA commercial accelerator program to refine the idea.
