The Bakery Shop

The Bakery Shop is an educational game collaboratively developed by WOSU Public Media, the Advanced Computing Center for the Arts and Design (ACCAD) at The Ohio State University and the Ohio Council on Economic Education.

Targeted to second graders, the game is designed to immerse the user in concepts of economics in a visually engaging way using an entertaining game context. The Bakery Shop leads users to recognize that people have many wants, that wants are unlimited and resources are scarce.

The goal is to enable students to explain how resources can be used in various ways, identify goods and services, and recognize money as the generally accepted medium of exchange for goods and services.

Funding for this project was provided by eTech Ohio.
