Since 2012, the System Dynamics Group at the University of Bergen in Norway and the Finance Department at the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy in Ukraine have been collaborating in a project called "Learning Economics with Dynamic Modeling." The project’s primary educational purpose is building system dynamics modeling capacity in Ukraine, thereby improving economics education and research. Over the next four years, the project will be enlarged and extended to include SD-based research in collaboration with economists at Ukraine’s central bank, plus an initiative to engage a select number of Ukrainian secondary school teachers and students in SD-based teaching and learning of economics. This paper describes an initial effort by two of the co-authors to engage secondary students in SD-based learning. Findings suggest that system dynamics-based education can contribute to student learning at the secondary school level in Ukraine, in addition to being an effective modeling tool for research at that level.
