Interactive: NGPF's Online Bank Simulator

Want your students to get a feel for managing an online bank account? We've got you covered!

In October 2022, we released our new and improved Bank Simulator. Since then, the popularity of the simulator and the feedback we've gotten from teachers has been outstanding!

In case you missed that announcement, or maybe you weren't teaching a personal finance related course at the time, we wanted to make sure you were able to check it out. With the accompanying worksheet, the activity can be done in about roughly 30 minutes.

Brick and mortar bank locations are certainly not going anywhere--as Bankrate reports, of those who prefer online or mobile banking, around 80% of those people still visited a physical location at some point.

NGPF's Bank Simulator will give students a great look at a financial tool they'll become familiar with very soon (if they haven't already).
