The Fractory: An Interactive Tool for Creating and Exploring Fractals

The Fractory, a one place stop for learning about, creating, and viewing fractals, was created by three students as a project for ThinkQuest (discussed in the January 26, 1996 Scout Report), a contest for students ages 12-19. There are six main sections to the Fractory, including Fractal Basics and the Fractal Message Board. Fractal Basics will inform you about the importance of fractals to the real world and teach you how fractals are generated. This explanation is presented with or without complex math. Users can learn about the different types of fractals in the Fractal Information section, and they can create their own fractal in the Make Your Own Fractals section. The Fractal Gallery offers viewers a chance to see some interesting creations. Links and references to other fractal sites are also provided.
