After 5 years, the award-winning financial education program Biz Kid$ has launched a new season, helping to bring all episodes back in heavy rotation on public television. This new season is comprised of 6 episodes that focus on teaching young adults personal finance and entrepreneurship in the same “edu-tainment” format.
Produced by the creative team behind “Bill Nye the Science Guy,” Biz Kid$ takes a fun approach to financial literacy with comic sketches and antics that appeal to kids from late elementary through high school. Hosted by a group of young people, the series teaches the importance of giving back to the community and the basics of smart money management based on national financial literacy educational standards.
