Educational Simulation Activating a Community Issue

Part of the iCivics suite of games, Activate is designed to provide teachers and students with immersive and effective tools for learning about civic issues. In the game, students campaign for an issue of their choice, become a local leader, and start a national movement. Players start by selecting one issue to volunteer and advocate for; the game offers four options: stop bullying at their school, help their family, volunteer at a local animal shelter, or clean up the local park. The issues are initially framed in terms of local action, but as players progress and complete goals (in the form of minigames), their activism reaches a national scale. By completing tasks, managing resources, and mobilizing others, students will successfully reach their goal: to raise awareness throughout all regions of the United States.
