The Congress simulation experience will focus strictly on the important democratic process of passing Congressional bills and more importantly, how different kinds of political forces, agendas and motives  influence members of Congress to determine what bills are passed.

Students will be responsible to their assigned U.S. state as respresentatives in the midst of a pivital Congressional vote on major national issues (multiple bills will be up for vote).  Each student-Congress member will have a pre-determined motive and objective that will guide their ultimate vote. However, along with their assigned objective and understanding of their district voter base , the student Congress member will also be influenced by their peers to gain their vote on the bills.
