Event description

Description

This event is for 5th to 8th grade girls. Some prior programming experience will be helpful but is not required.

Description

Complex systems are all around us from a flock of birds creating beautiful patterns, to the spread of diseases to understanding and protecting eco-systems. Computer simulations are a great tool scientists use to understand complex systems. In this class, you will learn about computer simulations and create your own simulations of an epidemic and what factors make it spread faster or stop which we like more. We will be using the online tool StarLogo Nova to create the simulations.

Attention parents: Please download and sign the permission slip and have your daughter bring it to the event. Please also take note of our No Show Policy.

Limited to 20 participants.
