Global Simulation Game
5 p.m-8 p.m., PE Building Gym (2nd floor)

100 UI students will get to participate in a three hour interactive world simulation game played on a giant world map. The game is presented by OS Earth. The game teaches participants how the world works by letting them make decisions for nations of the world. It stimulates thought on how we better manage the world and its resources.

A lottery will be held for the limited number of participant spots. Even if you can't play drop by and observe from the side lines.
