Hi Judy! I like how you respond to a real need in our educational system. It does seem that in Ontario, financial literacy is becoming an integral part of a Grade 10 career studies course this fall (https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/grade-10-career-studies-curriculum-focus-financial-literacy-ontario-1.5197517) , which is great news because I agree that financial literacy should be taught explicitly for the reasons you’ve researched and outlined for us! I also like that you’ve digitized the age-old symbol of saving – the piggy bank – using “the latest in connected technology, tangible interface design, and blockchain technology”. With Apple Pay, PayPal, Venmo, etc being the norm, it makes sense to use a digital “piggy wallet” for kids as that will speak to them more. The design of your product is appealing as well; very colourful and cute. How would this fit into an educational program? I know that you demonstrated how parents could interact with their children via Pigzbe, but is there an accompanying software that kids could use for simulation in a classroom for grades 4-9? You did include that in Pigzbe +; just wondering why not also for younger grades. Great job!
