What is the problem you found?
The problem is a lack of understanding and interest around finance from high schoolers. There are no compulsory courses focused on finance in the Australian curriculum as well as no free, interesting ways to learn about it outside of school.
What is your opportunity?
How might we make finance fun within the Australian curriculum?
Who is your audience?
Students lacking education around finance
What Is Your Solution?
A game based off of monopoly where students can walk around and read definitions but ask questions if they need. As they walk around it simulates real world situations where they need to make choices about investing, saving, buying and selling.
Funding to create the games and pay people to go to the schools
