boy with fractal art grab
  • chocolate syrup
  • 2 CD jewel boxes
  • paint
  1. Put a drop of syrup onto the center of one of the plastic squares.
  2. Press the second plastic square down on top of the first one.
  3. Pull the two squares straight apart. You have a fractal art pattern--a mathematical pattern with lots of branches.
  4. Now try it using paint in place of syrup.
