Genetic Mice

This model illustrates evolution over many generations. All of the mice in the simulation are trying to get to the cheese in the center, but the mice each react differently when confronted with barriers. Those mice with successful strategies for getting around barriers reach the cheese, mate, and pass on their strategies to their children.
