Simulate the motion of a school of fish



Adjust the rules that each fish follows.

The sliders change the rules of a computer program. How does each rule affect fish behavior?


Create a schooling pattern.

Some parts of the movie need fish to swim in a tight school, while others need a loose swarm of fish. Not all settings create schooling behavior.
