Do you ever wonder how certain life decisions will affect your long term financial situation? Do you want to have children early or later in life? What happens if you decide to pursue an advanced degree?
In this workshop, you'll get to simulate all these life decisions and more in a safe computer-based game and see how those life decisions may affect your long-term financial situation. This fun, interactive workshop also allows you to get a glimpse of how the stock market works as you simulate investing your savings and watching your money grow or disappear, depending on your investment options.
This workshop is based on the personal finance board game Awesome Island designed to engage students in the subjects of budgeting, life expenses, investments and employment benefits.
Learn more about Awesome Island at the Champlain's Center for Financial Literacy website.
