There are many examples of collaborative, crowdsourced art initiatives (see, for example,The Johnny Cash Project at http://www.thejohnnycashproject.com/) and many examples of collaborative citizen science programs (see the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s programs at http://www.birds.cornell.edu/citsci/). Expore the Internet for other examples. As you’re exploring, can you find others that merge art, science, and math in the manner that Wertheim has?
