SimCity? How About SimPittsburgh?

Have you ever thought about how the Pittsburgh region might be different if you were in charge? A game under development called CivicsLab will use real data to let kids see where their decisions would lead. The game’s creator, Duquesne University senior Laura Staniland, recently received a national award from the Digital Media and Learning Competition.

Listen to Staniland's interview with DUQ’s Katherine Fink.

The game is expected to be available sometime next year in venues like the Carnegie Science Center and the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh.
