Economy, Jr. Demo for Teachers 7/15 & 7/16

ReBuildUp-Presentation3-400x533ReBuildUp will be holding a demo for teachers of our economic literacy game Economy, Jr. on Wednesday, July 15th 6-8pm at Central Library [map] in Downtown Greensboro across from the Children’s Museum and again the next evening Thursday, July 16th 7-9pm at Vance Chavis Library [map].  Instructors on a tight schedule are welcome to pop in at their convenience.


Economy, Jr. shows students both sides of the economic coin with half of them playing as customers spending a month’s paycheck on necessities trying to avoid bankruptcy and the other half as merchants trying to sell enough to cover costs and post a profit.
