The CC-STADUS Project (Cross-Curricular Systems Thinking and Dynamics Using STELLA®) has an unusual origin and has experienced an even more unlikely evolution. Although some work had been done in computer modeling in K-12 classrooms prior to 1990, the number of teachers actually using system dynamics was very small. Almost no instructional materials were available, either commercially or in the public domain The Creative Learning Exchange had been established to serve as a clearinghouse for K-12 materials, but by the early 1990s it had accumulated little.
