Mint together with Scholastic have launched a new online “Quest for Money” game. The online game provides free tools to help middle school students learn essential and long-lasting personal finance skills and is part of Intuit Inc.’s (Nasdaq:INTU) financial literacy program, announced in December.

Mint and Scholastic, the global children’s publishing, education and media company, designed “Quest for Money” as a fun way for young people to learn about money management strategies like earning and saving money, and budgeting to meet specific financial goals.

The game challenges players with questions about money, shopping and saving – rewarding them for smart choices and correct answers.

In addition to the “Quest for Money” game, Mint’s financial literacy program provides teachers with lesson plans and online resources, and parents with family activities and worksheets that can be used at home.

The materials teach students about commonly used personal finance terms and explain complicated concepts, such as compound interest, with everyday scenarios and easy-to-understand language.
