The CitizIN interactive learning tool, a signature IU Bicentennial project spearheaded by the IU Center on Representative Government, was launched in 2019.

In 2017, the Indiana General Assembly passed Senate Enrolled Act 29, which mandated that Indiana schools offer an Indiana studies elective course in high school. To support this new high school course, the IU Center on Representative Government, IU Office of the Bicentennial, and their partners created CitizIN, a free digital interactive app about the history, government, geography, economics, and people of Indiana.
