"Our project is about using genetic algorithms to determine the best shape that fell the slowest. Mr Powell, my Dad, gave me the inspiration. Genetic Algorithms/ Natural selection does not always lead to the best solution instead creating a false one. Our genetic algorithm project was important because it reminds us that nature is ever changing and still perfecting its creations."
