HIGH SCHOOL ASIA CHALLENGE SIMULATION
The Asian Studies Center is pleased to host the second annual Asia Challenge simulation for high school students. The goal of Asia Challenge is to give students grades 9-12 the opportunity to learn about the history, politics, economics, and cultures of Asia and the surrounding region through a hands-on simulation. Playing the roles of delegates to the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP), which was formed in November 2020, students will spend a day engaged in intense negotiations over immediate and long-term crises affecting the RCEP partnership. The objective is to simulate a specific RCEP meeting that focuses on past and current events impacting Asia. Asia Challenge will enhance student understanding of classroom learning and give them a real sense of the challenges involved in the debate and decision-making process of RCEP.
