In this course, the student will create original computer programs using an agent-based modeling environment (or programming language) called NetLogo. NetLogo runs on Windows and Mac operating systems. NetLogo is open source and free to use. Students will gain experience designing, building, testing, debugging and running experiments with computer models and complex adaptive systems.
The course is open to both College and High School students. College students who successfully complete the class receive 3 UNM credits. High schools students who successfully complete the class receive 1 high school credit and 3 UNM college credits.
