“The program was very easy to follow. The format was a great way to engage 21 7-year-olds on a complicated topic. That is not an easy task!”

“The Cell Phone Game was a fun and interesting way to introduce the supply chain process to the underclassmen high school students of the Urban Assembly of Global Commerce in Harlem, NY. The game is fast-paced and engaging. Many of the students told us that they really enjoyed the game because of the challenge it presented. Additionally, it was clear to us as volunteers that the students gained valuable insights into each of the supply chain concepts that the game targets. It was great to see the students making business-minded decisions during the game. It was observed that the high school students carefully considered supplier lead times, cost differences, holding costs, and penalties for missed demand before they made their weekly supply chain decisions. I believe that the students will remember the lessons that they learned for a long time.”

“In 50 minutes my students were able to understand the four components of Supply Chain, the stages of new product development, and the pressures and problems that can arise during the production cycle. More importantly, through the extremely fun activity with Legos they felt excitement and pride in "manufacturing" a product quickly and accurately and the thrill of developing a new concept for a product.  We may have many new Supply Chain managers as a result of this activity!”
