Eric,

While looking for something else on the IBM website, I ran across more info on IBM educational grants and programs targeted at the K-12 level.

Mary,

Thanks for your post. I found this article very interesting. I
think that people learn best by doing. As an educator, I have found that my
students retain so much more if I have created an interactive lesson. This
program seems to accommodate aural, visual, and kinesthetic learners. This
software seems to be very innovative in that it is educational and
engaging. From the description and the pictures, it seems that this
software is an IT department's version of The Sims. Have you used this
software before? Does IBM have ambition to release k-12 software that has
similar curriculum goals? I am very interested in this product. Thanks
again.
