You will have the opportunity to build and play games where an epidemic is spreading and you need to stop it. Starting from a simple game you'll be able to change the way the simulated people and viruses behave and add buttons for different ways of trying to stop the epidemic. By building and playing with these models you'll be doing and learning real science. Try it now. (Or try it translated from English)
