Modeling environment for simulating natural and social phenomena.

Overview

NetLogo is a programmable modeling environment for simulating natural and social phenomena. It is particularly well suited for modeling complex systems developing over time. Modelers can give instructions to hundreds or thousands of independent "agents" all operating concurrently. This makes it possible to explore the connection between the micro-level behavior of individuals and the macro-level patterns that emerge from the interaction of many individuals.

NetLogo lets students open simulations and "play" with them, exploring their behavior under various conditions. It is also an authoring environment which enables students, teachers and curriculum developers to create their own models. NetLogo is simple enough that students and teachers can easily run simulations or even build their own. And, it is advanced enough to serve as a powerful tool for researchers in many fields.

NetLogo has extensive documentation and tutorials. It also comes with a Models Library, which is a large collection of pre-written simulations that can be used and modified. These simulations address many content areas in the natural and social sciences, including biology and medicine, physics and chemistry, mathematics and computer science, and economics and social psychology. Several model-based inquiry curricula using NetLogo are currently under development.

This is fantastic! The included sample simulations offer unique insights into many questions such as: Do bird flocks have a leader? How much would you stand to save by upgrading the insulation of your home? How do traffic jams develop and resolve? Watch as hundreds or even thousands of simulated animals, molecules, cells or guests at a party interact. Turn a knob or push a slider and the patterns change as each individual element in the simulation alters its behavior. There is probably no better illustration of the ways complex behavior can arise out of nothing but large numbers of independent actors each doing its own thing by following simple rules. Incredibly mind-expanding stuff!
