Nearly 600 students from 147 universities in 27 countries took part in the NASPAA-Batten Student Simulation Competition. The simulation was built using real-world data and challenged students to work together to manage a migrant influx in a fast-paced environment.
Participants in the 2018 competition—the largest-ever student simulation competition in higher education--took on the Pandemic Simulation, in which players are confronted the spread of an infectious disease.
NASPAA’s 2015 Inaugural Student Simulation Competition was held February 28, 2015. The competition featured the ReThink Health simulation, which required students to apply the skills they have learned in the classroom and implement systems thinking.
