  • Is Plus free? Group 15 Copy 6 Created with Sketch.

    Yes! All of Banzai's courses are free for educators and students. Banzai is supported by banks and credit unions who sponsor experience-based, financial education in your community.

  • How is Plus different from Teen? Group 15 Copy 6 Created with Sketch.

    It's actually quite similar, at least on the surface. It has a pretest, a game, and a posttest. It also has vocab features, just like in Teen. As a teacher, you can grade your students' progress.

    But Plus targets high schools students specifically; it addresses things like 401(k)s, mortgages, identity fraud, and other advanced topics—things adults don't learn about until they have to. Plus even has a few extra features, most notably a credit report and "fast forward." The credit report shows students how their choices and their spending affect their ability to borrow. Fast forward feature, on the other hand, helps students see how even small spending decisions can pile up over time.

    And like Teen, Plus is a lot of fun. The game is twice as long, the humor just as ridiculous, and, most important, it's real life.

  • Who is Plus appropriate for? Group 15 Copy 6 Created with Sketch.

    We designed Plus with two groups in mind: 1) high school teachers who want an advanced personal finance course for their students, and 2) college students and adults. The game revolves around a recent college graduate's goal to buy a home. On the way, he or she hits all kinds of roadblocks, setbacks, and even a few happy surprises.

    If you're worried Plus might be above your students' level, we encourage you to give it a try first. Banzai's teaching strategies favor experimentation over instruction, which makes the concepts much more accessible.

  • How long does it take? Group 15 Copy 6 Created with Sketch.

    Plus is a little longer than Teen. It has one seamless story, as opposed to two stories in Teen. Consider taking 2 to 5 classroom hours to complete the pretest, game, and posttest in Plus.

  • Do my students need to complete Teen before Plus? Group 15 Copy 6 Created with Sketch.

    No, but we recommend it. Plus was designed to be played independently—and it's plenty easy to play—but, your students will learn more and be better prepared for Plus if they've completed Teen first.

  • Is there a printed Activity Kit for Plus? Group 15 Copy 6 Created with Sketch.

    No, but, the Activity Kit for Banzai Teen is perfectly suited for students also using Plus.
