Adam Smith's Pin Factory is one of the most famous examples in the history of economics. During this program, educators will see a student simulation where the classroom is turned into a pin factory as students race to make "pins" out of pipe cleaners.

We will then take a virtual tour of Smith's pin factory using Adam Smith Works and connect passages from Smith's Wealth of Nations to key economic concepts, like the division of labor and trade. Three Econiful members will win a resource package to implement the simulation.
