See how students can manage a semi-virtual city for an entire school year. Students are given autonomy to manage their virtual citizens, but the challenges of having clean water, efficient transportation, and power for their residents and businesses requires significant collaboration with each other and experts in the community. This session will share the experiences of students navigating this complex series of challenges and invite you to start a similar course at your school.
