Banco de Portugal welcomes a school from Seixal at the Money Museum for a digital financial education session

On 9 October, Banco de Portugal hosted a session to increase financial awareness with the #toptip digital financial education campaign for 70 seventh-grade students from Escola EB 2/3 Dr. António Augusto Louro in Seixal.

This session took place at the financial education centre of Banco de Portugal’s Money Museum.

During the session, students played the game “Armoured Mission”, which aims to draw young people’s attention to the importance of adopting security procedures when using digital channels on computers, tablets or smartphones.

In the game, students ‘became’ highly specialised technicians in cybersecurity and online fraud prevention. Their mission was to alert employees of ‘their companies’ to existing risks such as fraudulent emails, insecure passwords or telephone calls aiming to defraud the workers and the company. For each security breach found, ‘their company’ registered a negative financial impact. At the end, the winner was the team with the fewest financial losses.

Students were also taken on a guided tour of the Money Museum.
