Importance of Saving, Spending & Sharing
Friday, February 11th, 2022—Syracuse Academy of Science middle school Project-Based Learning (PBL) 6th and 7th-grade students had an opportunity of a lifetime to create an interactive game to teach students about becoming strong money managers. Each grade was responsible for designing and pitching to Empower Federal Credit Union, their game that demonstrated their understanding of the importance of saving, spending, and sharing money.
The 6th-grade students created a game that teaches students about the importance of sharing, saving, and spending on items that are needs and not wants. Meanwhile, the 7th-grade students created a game teaching students how to spend money responsibly.
Each grade presented their games to Empower Federal Credit Union's Financial Education Officer, Cheryl Welles. Cheryl will select a winning team from each grade and will use their game to help teach elementary school students about the importance of saving, sharing, and spending.
