CUNA's Googolplex for kids spotlighted in Pensacola paper
MADISON, Wis. (1/7/13)--"Googolplex," an online program from the Credit Union National Association that teaches money skills to children, was highlighted in a Jan. 3 Pensacola News Journal article about saving.

As part of its efforts to teach kids about money, Harvesters FCU said it steers young members to Googolplex.

Googolplex includes three customizable Web sites that feature interactive games, videos and colorful stories dealing with money matters and life issues. Each Googolplex site appeals to a specific age group--5-Spot for elementary schoolers, A-J's for middle schoolers, and C-Note for high schoolers.

Because Googolplex teaches different denominations of money and explains how to count it, kids become more financially independent at an earlier age, Melanie Velaski of Harvesters FCU, told the Journal.
