I love this project! The students get to see just how expensive University is by planning their post secondary budget. So, they choose out of a hat the University and department of study, as well as their income (money saved, RESP from parents and loans from the government). They than apply that knowledge in to their budget. They have to plan for everything, even what they will purchase to put in their dorm room! Let's just say there were a lot of OMG moments in class with this final project as it allows the students to see the reality of budgeting and it's importance immediately after highschool.
