TechGirlz - Using Computer Simulations to Help Solve Complex Problems

Sunday, January 1712:00—2:00 PMZoomIndian Valley Public Library100 E. Church Ave, Telford, PA, 18969

Girls in grades 5 to 8 are invited to join other girls from around the nation in the TechGirlz workshop. 

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. 

Students will need access to a computer and the internet. Phones/tablets will work but a computer is best.  Please send an email to Danica if you have any questions.
