Abstract for: Session Summary: What Does System Dynamics Look Like for Students aged 5-18?
What do students aged 5-18 do with system dynamics in schools?? This session brings together different examples of how students are using system dynamics in their learning through direct student presentation and videos of students as well as descriptions from master teachers. Examples will show students of a variety of ages using system dynamics in their learning, students presenting models they have built, and a student with the drive and energy to single-handedly create a system dynamics club in his school. Titles of presentations in this session are: Systems Thinking for Students in Elementary and Middle Schools, Tucson AZ, Creating and Sustaining the Haig System Dynamics Club, Toronto, Canada, System Dynamics in the Sustainable Systems High School Elective, Seattle WA, and High School Students' Models, Portland OR.
