Topics taught include:

  • Cash budgeting

  • Credit cards versus debit cards

  • Interest rates

  • Money in, money out

  • Retirement accounts

  • Time value of money

  • Mortgages

  • Investing basics

National Standards for Personal Financial Education and Financial Literacy
Format

A Spaceship For You is a fully self-contained video game that teaches financial literacy at the 8th to 12th grade level. Teachers can either assign the game as homework to reinforce concepts learned in class, or have their students play in at school in class. Our curriculum covers ~.25 credits of a typical class and can be used in lieu of teaching those topics in class. The game typically takes 10 to 20 hours to complete, depending on how well the player budgets.

 

We have our curriculum fully mapped out to the Jump$tart National Standards and can work with your educators to design a full in-class curriculum based around the game.
