How Many Zombies Are Too Many Zombies?

How Many Zombies Are Too Many Zombies?

Culturadar Find Culturadar Find

In How Many Zombies Are Too Many Zombies? players take on the role of scientists helping the “Center for Calamity Control” simulate a zombie outbreak. Facilitators introduce participants to mathematical modeling and the ways they can be used to simulate, analyze and make predictions about the complex real-world phenomenon. Players help modify the simulation by suggesting different parameters, such as the number of steps zombies can take in the Zombie Outbreak Simulator, a turn-based game of zombie tag. Then participants play through the simulation, embodying the very parameters they’ve chosen, while the facilitator tracks the population of zombies and humans. At the end, players see graphs detailing the population swings and can further tweak parameters and see different results through play.
