What are Fractals?

They're everywhere, those bright, weird, beautiful shapes called fractals. But what are they, really?

There's lots of information on the Web about fractals, but most of it is either just pretty pictures or very high-level mathematics. So this fractals site is for kids, to help them understand what the weird pictures are all about - that it's math - and that it's fun!
