Overview

Participants will be able to demonstrate understanding of the necessity of negotiation and compromise, as well as staying true to personal convictions, as they craft bills that will become laws.

Players navigate a simulation of law creation, working as a member of the House or Senate to craft a bill and pass it through Congress and get it signed by the President. While addressing an issue that is important to their constituents, players must keep their own values and the values of their party in mind.
