Young Enterprise has created a series of board games that help students to become more financially capable. Concentration is our version of the popular card game, Memory. Students pair financial terms with their matching images. They can play beginner, advanced and Brainburner levels of the game.

Student learning

Through Concentration, students will become familiar with financial terms such as spending, saving, price and budget.
