At Lisgar Collegiate Institute in Ottawa, Ontario, Terry Prichett uses simulations to teach his students important concepts in mathematics, computer programming, physics and chemistry, among many other subjects. Students have been exposed to computer-based community planning games in which they learn the multiple effects of decisions, and a space program that shows them how science can be applied to practical problems. Mr. Prichett has, even during a period of financial restraint, expanded the space program to make it available to the entire school board.
