I will be presenting a poverty simulation in my HDFS 360 class. This is a great opportunity for students to develop a deeper understanding and empathy for those who experience poverty in their lives.
What: Poverty Simulation
When: Sept. 4 & 6th from 9-9:50am
Where: Marston 2200
Sign up: contact Dr. Amanda Hardy at Hardy@iastate.edu and put "simulation volunteer" in the subject heading.
Student volunteers would be assigned a role in the simulation (police officer, bank teller, pawn shop, health clinic, etc.). Each role has a detailed description of the task that is supposed to be carried out. Essentially, all the student has to do is show up and follow those directions!
