Working to develop Systems Citizens in K-12 Education
A new version of Splash! Version 1.5!
Splash! is a simple modeling software that’s designed with beginners in mind – something that students might use to learn system dynamics.
New in this release:
DynamiQueST is a showcase of the power of simulations and creative student projects that utilize critical thinking skills to analyze complex dynamic systems.
In 2019, students participated in a large scale climate change simulation as well as presented their own work. This combination fosters an energetic learning environment as they learn the global power of system dynamics as well as experiencing what challenges their peers are tackling.
2018 CLE Conference
The 2018 CLE ST/DM Conference was a success! Great presentations from teachers, system dynamicists, and others. Beta testing of Splash!, System stories, and More!
An Exploration of Vampires, Zombies, and Other Fantastic Scenarios to Make the World a Better Place
by Anne LaVigne and Lees Stuntz
If you’re interested in thinking about how to solve mysteries and like the idea of creating computer models and applying them to real-world problems, this book is for you. You can use it independently as a student, work with a group of students, or if you’re a teacher, share it with interested students to complete a guided or independent study.
Learn more, get the book, and some extensions (including some models with Stella Online!) at the Model Mysteries page.
