More on Turing and Fibonacci sequences

Those of you who came to the January SciBar will remember Jonathan Swinton discussing an experiment performed by Alan Turning with sunflowers. This is now planned as a mass experiment and you can read more about this on the BBC story “Greater Manchester sunflowers to test Alan Turing theory” by following the link below. Thousands of sunflowers are to be planted in Greater Manchester to try to prove a theory put forward by a mathematics genius.

If you want to plant a Turing sunflower and help test Turing’s theory about plant growth, seeds will be available in April and May and you can register at the Manchester Science Festival link below.
