I’ve been exploring binary with Year 8s and thought they might like to have a look at the weird world of Cellular Automata.
There are lots of resources out there but I couldn’t find one that helped them create their own easily.
So I made this in Google Sheets.
It’s pretty simplistic but essentially there are 2 steps.
Step 1) Students make their “God Rules”
Step 2) Students look at the results tab and see how different seedings create different patterns
Hope it’s helpful.
