A blog dedicated to the popular mobile game, The Simpsons: Tapped Out
Once you build the Springfield Knowledgum, it’s up to Lisa and Skinner to fix the science curriculum. Hopefully the strategy of trying to make science fun will help to increase the aggregate test scores. By the end of this section of the quest line you will find out whether this experiment worked, and if Lisa helped to save Skinner from the wrath of Superintendent Chalmers.
The conclusion of this quest line takes place at the Springfield High School with an eleven part quest line titled “High School Low”.
Lisa: This is truly amazing. I feel like I am surrounded by knowledge, cradled in the bosom of learning!
Skinner: I would echo your sentiment, but if I say the word “bosom” around a child, I could lose my job.
Lisa: Let’s split up. Remember — we’re looking for ways to make science fun for kids.
Skinner: Or, barring that, some sort of kid-shaped automaton that is good at science tests.
Skinner: Or, barring that, let’s try to determine if there are any job openings in their janitorial team.
Skinner: And if so, if they’d be interested in someone like me.
Lisa: I think I know how to revitalize the science curriculum. Let’s do what this place does, and show that science is fun!
Skinner: Whoa, whoa, whoa, Lisa. “Science is fun?” I have Masters in Education, young lady.
Skinner: And one of the things I learned in graduate school is that science is boring and, to use a technical term, sucky.
Skinner: Even Einstein knew science was a total snooze-fest! Probably, I mean, he was super-smart, so he must’ve known that.
Lisa: I’m telling you — follow my advice, and Springfield Elementary will be filled with budding scientists in no time.
Skinner: Um, Superintendent Chalmers?
Chalmers: Can’t you see I’m busy? I’m trying to determine the most painful, humiliating way to fire you.
Chalmers: What I have so far is good, but it doesn’t really “sing” yet, you know?
Skinner: Yes, of course. But I think the children should be retested now that they’ve learned how fun science can be.
Chalmers: “Science is fun?” The very notion goes against centuries of Western thought. I’ll admit it — I’m intrigued.
Chalmers: Well, look at that. The kids’ test scores are up. Way up! I’m talking “satisfactory” up! Well done, Seymour!
Skinner: Thank you, sir. Although I have to admit, I had help.
Chalmers: Yes, yes, we all assumed that.
