Using Computer Simulations to Help Solve Complex Problems
Complex systems are all around us from a flock of birds creating beautiful patterns, to the spread of diseases to understanding and protecting ecosystems. 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. We will be using the online tool StarLogo Nova to create the simulations.
Please sign up for a free Starlogo Nova account prior to the workshop.
Signs will be posted to guide registrants. Devices and snacks will be provided.
Please send an email to Anndee Hiller if you have any questions. Thanks!
