The 2011 Fractal Trianglethon is almost upon as (April 10th) and hundreds and hundreds of fractals keep pouring in from all over the world!

The students assembled it in their gym, and the story made the local paper.
Besides New York, we’ve been receiving fractals from all over the country, including California, Delaware, Georgia, Ohio, Minnesota and Ohio. The whole world is participating too! Fractals have been coming in from Canada, England, Australia and India as well.
