Kindergarteners and complexity

Kindergarteners and complexity? Huh? what are you talking about?

Today I went on a picnic with my son's kindergarten class; great day out for it! After eating we played freeze tag. Imagine: 30 5+ year olds with 5 adults as "it", trying to tag all the kids. And the kids, not quite freezing, running to unfreeze other kids.

Scatter is a working model of complexity theory and social science in action! The digital version of this is at the NetLogo model library. Scatter is not quite freeze tag, but it gets the point across. Turning model into freeze tag is your home work:)
