The Toothpick Factory: A Simulation Game for the Soft Skills

Made in Florida, a product of the Florida Advanced Technological Education Center (FL-ATE) has provided this slideshow of the learning processes behind a simulation called the Toothpick Factory. The Toothpick Factory is a hands-on activity for a classroom or workplace environment intended to increase people’s soft skill set, such as the ability to work on a team, listening, leading, etc. This resource discusses the advantages behind this activity, describes the steps of the simulation, and goes over each aspect of the kit available through FL-ATE. Results collected from past participants of this simulation (that are recorded in charts on this website) show just how useful and engaging the activity can be.
