The interface for Star Logo may be intended for adults or older children,
but my 7 year old child is having no trouble with it so far. She's actually
found it MORE intuitive than I have (scary but true). I've only had her
working with it for a few days, but am very surprised how fast she has taken
I don't think I can brag a genius in the family (not if she has my genes
anyway ;-), so I'd say starlogo's interface is fine the way it is.

Subject: [starlogo-users] Introducing the modeling-complexity list
The Center for Agent-based Modeling at Mesa State College is pleased to
announce the creation of "modeling-complexity" - an e-mail list dedicated to
discussing the pedagogical and methodological issues involved in agent-based
The list is open to anyone who is interested in using agent-based modeling
for teaching and research.
While program specific lists like starlogo-users serve a large community,
they tend to focus more on the programming issues of the particular program.
This list is intended to focus not on coding issues, but rather the broader
questions of: how can agent-based modeling be effectively used in the
classroom? What are the methodological issues of doing agent-based research,
and how to do they differ from traditional empirical analysis?
The list is open to users of ANY agent-based program that can be used in a
classroom environment, i.e., netlogo, starlogo, agent sheets, repast,
We hope you will consider joining us.
