Secondary Education Programmes

SIMSG

 


This programme aims to provide an authentic environment for students to learn and experience trade-offs in governance and be involved in decision-making. Jointly developed by SDC and MOE’s Character and Citizenship Education (CCE) Branch, students will role-play as mayors of Singapore districts and compete in teams to develop the most productive and effective district in Singapore.

Briefing [15 Mins]

Role-play as mayors and understand the resources that you would have to manage within the limited land space.

SIMSG Gameplay [3 Hrs]

The game is played over a few rounds and each team will collect resources to negotiate and trade with other teams at every round. Teams will decide on which infrastructure to construct as well as the deployment of manpower within their districts. In addition, they will have to strategise to avoid receiving penalties from resource shortage or unemployment issues. Eventually, the team that manages their resources most effectively will win the game.

Debrief and Reflection [30 Mins]

The students will reflect on their learning experiences and gain insights into the complexities of governance.

Learning Objectives 

1. Explore issues related to the governance of Singapore
