Computer Simulation: Packing Candy


No Need to Request kit. All Materials Listed


How can we use computer modeling to simulate real world conditions? In this interactive activity, students will see how coding (Python) can be used to set up a simulation. They will then alter variables in the simulation to try and figure out what are the best conditions to package M&M’s as densely as possible in a bag.
