For me, civic education is the key to inspiring kids to want to stay involved in making a difference.
Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor, U.S. Supreme Court
iCivics has helped my students to become better educated and comfortable with the functions of the United States government. They are now more engaged in the political process and exhibit confidence when discussing political issues.

With iCivics, you get to take charge and solve the nation’s problems, and you begin to really see how much of an impact you can make to the community, state, even country and make this country better.
Julie Lewelling, 13 years old (8th grade), Coronado, K-8, Tucson, AZ
I have worked to promote civic education for young people through iCivics. I consider engaging the next generations of citizens to be my most important work yet and my legacy.
Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, U.S. Supreme Court [Ret.]
My students played “¿Tengo algún derecho?” and they absolutely loved it. After playing the Spanish version a few times, they were more successful when playing “Do I Have A Right?” in English.
Miriam Gonzerelli, Bilingual Language Arts, TOR Middle School, Stamford, CT
I love getting to play iCivics. It’s amazing how much your view changes when you’re the one to have to take care of the people; not the other way around. It opened up my mind about how much work it is to keep everyone happy and made me appreciate my government much more.
Kylie Ray, 7th grade, Waco, TX
I find the materials so engaging, relevant, and easy to understand – I now use iCivics as a central resource, and use the textbook as a supplemental tool. The games are invaluable for applying the concepts we learn in class. My seniors LOVE iCivics.
Lynna Landry , AP US History & Government / Economics Teacher and Department Chair, California
I have found that students are absolutely excited about playing the games. They love "winning" the games, via court trials, etc. Even the most reluctant readers are fighting over who has the highest score in "Do I Have A Right?" all while learning. It is amazing!
