 In this simulation, participants are assigned to two artificial cultures. Each group is introduced to a different set of cultural values and allowed to practice these values and subsequently engage the other culture. This simulation is designed to foster cross-cultural awareness through experiencing the development and impact of stereotypes.  Participants come to appreciate the negative impact of stereotypes and of the need to foster greater tolerance and understanding of others in all spheres of life.
