Juergen,
   I used Tinker Toys to have students construct small group networks.  The round pieces are the nodes and the sticks are the links. Having something concrete really works well with young students.

I have a quick question for you. We will be having a summer program for middle-school girls and I am planning a “Girls do Networks” workshop (3 days). Does anyone here have experience/materials for such activities and/or do you have an idea for a practical project (data collection/analysis)… that doesn’t look like an idea from an old guy who tries to come up with something cool? ;)

Thanks,

PS: If you have a 12 +/- 2 year old daughter, I’d be happy if you do a little youth culture interview for me. I bet there is a movie/book/etc. that they all know that we could analyze…
