Kids have been playing a civics video game called Win the White House, reports Shumita Basu for WYNC. The free, online game was developed by iCivics, which was founded by former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor.
The game, which lets students run their own presidential campaign, was played 2.2 million times in the month of October alone.
What’s next from iCivics? Executive Command lets kids (and perhaps some adults) simulate what to do with the presidency once it’s won.
