Young scientists have been awarded following impressive showcases of innovative scientific and engineering brilliance at the Eskom Expo International Science Fair.
Iqra Faki from Star College Cape Town Sybrand Park Campus was awarded the best female award for the project "Fractal exploration: The 3-dimensional Koch snowflake."
The aim of the project was to examine mathematical trends and noticeable properties for the surface area and volume of the three-dimensional Koch snowflake.
She tells more about the project to Joanne Joseph.
Basically what I did was I used the principle of the Koch snowflake to create a 3-dimensional version.— Iqra Faki, Young scientists
I hope my project inspires people and make them want to go into science.— Iqra Faki, Young scientists
