SimSketch: Multiagent Simulations Based on Learner-Created Sketches for Early Science Education

2013 IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies  
This paper presents an approach to create simulations of science phenomena based on sketches. SimSketch, an integrated drawing and modeling tool, allows students to create sketches and apply behaviors to elements of their drawing. A multiagent simulation engine interprets and executes the model, thus building an intuitively usable and motivating learning environment to build and explore simulations of scientific phenomena.
