Jury Simulation Teen Event

Your teenage student can participate in an incredible opportunity to actually experience what it takes to bring someone to trial and wrestle through the difficulties inherent in the judicial process.

Homeschool Iowa is hosting a two-day Generation Joshua iObject event
allowing registered students to become immersed as grand jurors
in a simulated 1930's Chicago mafia case.

Thanks to our generous sponsor, Americans for Prosperity Foundation Iowa, homeschoolers can register for an amazingly low fee that includes lunch on both days!

During the event, students will question witnesses, examine evidence, and learn what is and is not allowed in testimony.

Interspersed throughout the hands-on simulation are discussions of what it means to be an engaged citizen, what is justice, and the importance of honor and integrity in the criminal justice process.

    1. Hi, Veronica!
      The answer is: Yes! (As space allows, of course.) Parents and siblings are welcome to come observe the program if they would like. There are usually some chairs set up in the back for anyone who would like to sit and watch.

    1. Hi, Susan!
      We checked with the Generation Joshua staff.
      Here’s their response:
      “The dress code is casual, but, if students would like to dress up in period attire (think 1930’s), they are welcome (but not required) to do so. For guys, period attire would be something like a suit or dress pants, button-down shirt, and vest. Hope this helps!”
