Numerycles is a multi-discipline, innovative program that functions as a technology integrator and a creativity and entrepreneurship catalyst. The program is suitable for all ages from 10 up.
Numerycles is based on a modification of the Fibonacci series, implemented by using the digit-sum of the series members instead of the members themselves. This simple alteration of Leonardo of Pisa’s creation generates the sequences that become the distinctive feature of the program.
