NE$T – Financial Board Game

Students from Temasek Polytechnic have developed a financial board game called NE$T specially designed for the elderly in Singapore. This financial board game is first of its kind in Singapore and it is based on the “Social Model”.

Besides having fun playing the game, its main objective is to create financial awareness amongst the Seniors. Demonstration by students and lecturers from Temasek Polytechnic was recently held at SAGE on 22 Sept 2010 which engaged Seniors to play the game. They enjoyed the game as it also enhances their knowledge and make them realize the importance of financial planning.

Plans are in the pipeline to commercialise this board game.
