Only four weeks until we start!


Our heads are buzzing as we are polishing the first two complete chapters of our course. We see patterns everywhere and are excited about every bit of progress we make. We are adding subtitles to the final edits of screencasts and videos. Animations explaining gliding planes are about to be rendered.

We spent the last week in a house on the west coast of Denmark where we discussed some new crystal structures in a large group seminar. In between the talks we scripted the forthcoming chapters and searched for a good place to build a shared collection for pictures of crystals and patterns. And of course we took a break on the windy seashore.

More and more people are joining us in our course. Please continue telling your friends and colleagues about it. Show them the crystal mooc preview at

It’s free, it’s fun and it doesn’t take long!
