On February 29th Institute of Public Policy, National Law School of India University, Bangalore hosted 40 graduate students from 12 universities to participate in the 2020 NASPAA-Batten Student Simulation Competition.
The NASPAA-Batten Student Simulation Competition is a day-long event that allows graduate students in public policy and related fields to test their skills on real-world data. Each year, the Center for Leadership Simulation and Gaming develops an original participatory simulation specifically tailored for students of public policy and administration. The simulations provide participants an opportunity to employ their knowledge in a realistic situation, as well as the chance to hone their skills in leadership, negotiation, and critical thinking.
This year’s competition, “Metropolitan: A Sustainable Transit Simulation” asked players to work in teams to build sustainable public transit infrastructure in their city.
