  • 2nd Introductory Module

    Posted April 20, 2019 by mehagaman


    Several teachers requested a 2nd (or even 3rd) introductory module they could use with students in pairing with their content module.  

    In Virginia, Alana and her team have done Module 1 and a content module in 7th grade, and then Molly continues with them in 8th grade.  They want more modules and additional intro ones to get the students re-familiarized with the concepts, CAS, computational thinking,  and StarLogo Nova without having to repeat Module 1.  

  • Modification Ideas for Models

    Posted April 20, 2019 by mehagaman


    Choose one of the content-area modules (Module 2, 3, or 4) and brainstorm potential student modifications for the base model based on difficulty/time. Please include:

    • Your Name
    • Module Chosen
    • A modification that students could do for their models to extend them and whether the modification is:
      • An easy modification that could be done quickly
      • A medium-difficulty modification
      • A challenging modification
    • Any other ideas you have for extending or modifying the model

    See the forum for an example.

  • Homeostasis & Disease

    Posted February 27, 2019 by Ashley Phillips


    I would like to have students code a system that represents how body systems use feedback loops to maintain homeostasis/how disease represents a flaw in these loops. I am a Living Environment teacher but have very basic programming skills. Would anyone be interested in helping me develop this? Thank you! 

  • Pages, The World, Everyone, and Turtle

    I have been able to make the projects in module 1 by following videos and power point instructions, but I feel like I need a deeper understanding.  I am a little confused about setting up a model.  I don't understand what goes on each page.  Why is create turles of "The World" instead of "Turtle" and what is "Everyone" for?

  • Epidemic Module Help Debug

    Posted February 1, 2019 by miriam.brown@j…


    First of all,  I am so thankful for the help I am getting from this forum.  I really believe this is a great curriculum, but for me the learning curve is steep.  I appreciate the help you give me on this forum.  One of my students is working on the epidemic model and it seems to not be working.  Can someone help me debug this?  https://www.slnova.org/%24-Trip-EEE-%24/projects/662839/edit/
