The Sierpinski Carpet Project is a nonprofit, collective and joint activity among children, from 3 to 16 (extended to to 99 years old), around the world. We want to build a giant geometric fractal, known as Sierpinski Carpet, with coloured squared stickers.
The Sierpinski carpet is a well known fractal in mathematics, published by the Polish mathematician Waclaw Sierpinski in 1916. Its’ construction is simple: start with a square, divide it in 9 equal squares and take out the central one; then, iterate this process in each of the 8 remaining squares, and continue infinitely many times. This produces a self-similar object, with zero area, but infinite perimeter.
