Based on historical trends in Sarawak, Malaysia, this project takes an existing generic model of tourism development, adds a sector for industrial development, and constructs an interactive learning environment to present the model in such a way so that an entire class can participate in policy experimentation without wasting time and attention adjusting model settings directly. The goal of the project being to create a simulator that successfully conveys the dynamics of development via tourism and industry in the simplest and most effective manner possible.
