A handicraft, sometimes more precisely expressed as artisanal handicraft or handmade, is any of a wide variety of types of work where useful and decorative objects are made completely by hand or by using only simple tools. Collective terms for handicrafts include artisanry, handicrafting, crafting, and handicraftsmanship.
Handicrafting has its roots in the rural crafts—the material-goods necessities—of ancient civilizations, and many specific crafts have been practiced for centuries, while others are modern inventions, or popularizations of crafts which were originally practiced in a limited geographic area. Many handicrafters use natural, even entirely indigenous, materials while others may prefer modern, non-traditional materials, and even upcycle industrial materials. Seen as developing the skills and creative interests of students, generally and sometimes towards a particular craft or trade, handicrafts are often integrated into educational systems, both informally and formally. Most crafts require the development of skill and the application of patience, but can be learned by virtually anyone. The Arts and Crafts movement originated as a late 19th-century design reform and social movement principally in Europe, North America and Australia, and continues today.

These activities were called crafts because originally many of them were professions under the guild system. Adolescents were apprenticed to a master craftsman, and refined their skills over a period of years in exchange for low wages. Simple “arts and crafts” projects are a common elementary and middle school activity in both mainstream and alternative education systems around the world. In some of the Scandinavian countries, more advanced handicrafts form part of the formal, compulsory school curriculum, and are collectively referred to as sloyd in Swedish, and käsityö or veisto in Finnish. Secondary schools and college and university art departments increasingly provide elective options for more handicraft-based arts, in addition to formal “fine arts”, a distinction that continues to fade throughout the years, especially with the rise of studio craft, i. Many community centers and schools run evening or day classes and workshops, for adults and children, offering to teach basic craft skills in a short period of time.

Not to be confused with Stimulation. Simulation is the imitation of the operation of a real-world process or system. Simulation is used in many contexts, such as simulation of technology for performance optimization, safety engineering, testing, training, education, and video games. Key issues in simulation include acquisition of valid source information about the relevant selection of key characteristics and behaviours, the use of simplifying approximations and assumptions within the simulation, and fidelity and validity of the simulation outcomes. Visualization of a direct numerical simulation model.
Historically, simulations used in different fields developed largely independently, but 20th century studies of systems theory and cybernetics combined with spreading use of computers across all those fields have led to some unification and a more systematic view of the concept. Interactive simulation is a special kind of physical simulation, often referred to as a human in the loop simulation, in which physical simulations include human operators, such as in a flight simulator or a driving simulator. Continuous simulation is a simulation where time evolves continuously based on numerical integration of Differential Equations. Deterministic Simulation is a simulation where the variable are regulated by deterministic algorithms, so replicated runs from same boundary conditions produce always identical results. Stand Alone Simulation is a Simulation running on a single workstation by itself. Simulation as a Service where Simulation is accessed as a Service over the web.
Simulation Fidelity is used to describe the accuracy of a simulation and how closely it imitates the real-life counterpart. Fidelity is broadly classified as 1 of 3 categories: low, medium, and high. Human in the loop simulations can include a computer simulation as a so-called synthetic environment. This was the best and fastest method to identify the failure cause.
