Gen i Revolution goes mobile with two new mini games

CEE is pleased to introduce Gen i: Murktide Invasion and Gen i: Beyond the Mission, two new interactive games based on Gen i Revolution, that tap into the power of social and digital media to teach your students about saving and investing.

Available online and as Facebook applications, Murktide Invasion and Beyond the Mission are designed for students in grades 6–12. The games challenge players to put their investing knowledge to the test in a series of questions, going head-to-head with the “Murktide,” a network of double agents spreading false information about finance across the country.

Are you ready to take on the Murktide?

Gen i: Murktide Invasion and Gen i: Beyond the Mission were made possible by generous funding from H&R Block Dollars & Sense, which works to increase teens’ financial fitness nationwide.
