The ESSI Money game supports students to explore the concepts of Earning, Saving, Spending and Investing in an educational and fun way. 30,000 unique players a year can’t be wrong!
Through game play based in a ‘virtual world’, students achieve an understanding of how decisions made over a period of time can have both positive and negative impacts on their financial situation. The game allows students to practise real life financial transactions and experience the consequences in a safe, fun and challenging way.
ESSI Money is targeted to middle years students, although all students from years 7 to 12 are effectively engaged with the game. It has direct links (but is certainly not restricted to) the following curriculum areas:
- Economics and Business
- Personal Development Programs
