A four-part series of video tutorials on creating Spatial Models is now available. The series contains over 140 minutes of instruction on many of the concepts and techniques used to build advanced Nova models, including submodels, capsules, properties, code chips, agent containers, custom functions, and NovaScript. The lessons are cumulative, and culminate in building the canonical cellular automaton model Conway’s Game of Life. After you’ve built this model in Nova (or use the copy in the model library), investigate some of the patterns that have fascinated mathematicians for four decades.
