Students collaboratively use this simulation program to examine the spread of disease. Teachers can determine the incubation time, individual immunity levels and how many characters, called coodles, will start with the infection. Students meet and possibly infect each other by beaming between their Palm OS devices. The program tracks which students have met, and will let students know if their coodle is sick. After meeting each other, students collaboratively determine the initial carrier of the disease and trace the transmission path among coodles.
