This paper reports on and discusses one Scottish secondary school's attempts to develop an understanding of discrimination and prejudice with S1 (Year 7 in England) pupils using a simulation based on a truncated version of Jane Elliott's 'Blue eyes Brown Eyes' experiment of the 1960s. The research questions were: •Did the pupils learn anything about discrimination from the day as a whole? •Did they remember what they have learned over a period of time? •Did the 'winter babies' gain more from the day than the 'summer babies'? •Was the experiment worthwhile? The paper first, discusses the issue of using simulations in general and specifically with pupils aged about 12 years; second, explains how the simulation was set up; third, reports on the pupil perception of the simulation-both the 'victims' and the 'bystanders'; and fourth attempts to draw some tentative conclusions.
