During the 2-day summer session “Naturally Inspired” participants worked with NetLogo – a multi-agent simulator – modifying and creating programs to mirror or explain existing phenomena. In this shared follow-up session we’ll focus on algorithms. To maintain consistency with the second half of this follow-up (Space), when we’re programming, we’ll use the Python programming language. Don’t worry if you are not familiar with Python – we’re mostly going to be comparing and discussing different implementations of algorithms as well as different algorithms that solve the same problem.
The overall objectives for the NetLogo portion of the followup follow:
Teachers will be able to:
Our session will be segmented into 4 main parts, surrounded by a pre- and post- test:
After the session, a full rendered version will be available as a PDF document.
