My Comp Sci Project

I'm in my school's Computer Seminar class. Guess what I get to do as a school project! From my proposal:
For my design project, I plan to create a simulated model of foot traffic that is applicable to various traffic situations. I plan to use this model to examine traffic flow in and out of my school's main building, and traffic flow through the cafeteria.

Basically, I'm going to make some virtual environments, walk some virtual people through them, and see what happens. This should be fun. I'm doing it with the Swarm toolkit, which is quite useful for modeling simulations of "agents"--little people or things that interact with each other.
I'll eventually put my project up for download somewhere, so people can play with it.
