Simulations range from Gen i Revolution, where students take on the role of operatives on 16 missions to help people save and invest, to Invest in What’s Next, new online modules designed to help students make their first major financial decision – what path to pursue after high school. Teachers will gain access to a wealth of free personal finance lessons and resources from Next Gen Personal Finance, National Endowment of Financial Education, Federal Reserve Education, Teaching Money VA, Jump$tart Clearinghouse, and the Council on Economic Education—just to name a few.
