The OU K20 Center is a statewide educational research center located in Norman, Oklahoma. The Center has worked in-depth with more than 500 schools over the past 12 years, researching and developing school structures to support innovative learning methods. In its ongoing efforts and close collaboration with educators, the K20 Center designs and utilizes interactive student-centered instruction to promote higher order thinking and problem solving.
One of the Center’s many outlets for interactive instruction is the Digital Game-Based Learning Program.

Ratings and Reviews
One of the best budget simulations I have come across. Great for students who are high functioning with learning disabilities as well as for "normal" middle- and high-schoolers.
This would be a really good educational resource if it didn't crash constantly! After paying 10 dollars, I was hoping for better quality so that my students could use it in the classroom. I hope this is fixed soon.
