  • The challenge can be completed by programming a virtual flower field in Snap! (or Scratch) and posting a screenshot or photo of the result online.
  • The flower field should contain different types of flowers with different numbers of petals. Ideally, the flowers are programmed, which means that they are constructed by stamping and turning (or drawing and turning) petals repeatedly.
