Sierpinski Triangle

Get kids excited about science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics (STEAM) with this fun hands-on collaborative project. Typically done during a Family Math Night event, this project can also be done in the classroom. The best part is, each person is individually represented in the final product!

The project includes three activity levels all which result in creating self-similar triangles which are then put together to make the large Sierpinski Triangle. Focusing on fractals (self-similarity), participants will learn about the Father of Fractal Geometry, Benoit Mandlebrot, Chaos Theory, and the connection between fractals and our cell phones.
