Uncover self-replicating emoji patterns
Students apply an algorithm, described by a simple set of rules, to create a self replicating emoji patterns across a grid. This is a type of 1D cellular automata, and provides an introduction to different type of computational thinking and a deeper understanding of algorithms.
