The No-Fault Zone Game helps create a culture of empathy in schools by providing hands-on materials that students and teachers use throughout the school day to: understand themselves, empathize with others, solve problems, resolve conflicts collaboratively. The Game is also used to enrich academics, helping students understand characters in literature and history, and strengthen their own story-telling and writing. 2012-04-02
