My group -- (americafound.org) is looking for a gamer and collaborator to help us create a really innovative social and political project in collaboration with college kids and profs from Harvard, Stanford, and UPenn. We want to create a game for high schoolers who will adopt avatars as politicians and slog it out over how to fix the debt and balance the U.S. budget. The game will take place over a semester in coordination with American government classes. We hope to teach students about the American budget process as what it is really like to be a politician dealing with competing interests. Above all we hope to come up with a solution that will knock the socks off of Washington itself.
Help us! Please shoot me a message if interested!
