Four 10-year-olds have helped to create a computer game which they believe will prove to be a good investment. Mighty Savers aims to teach children how to spend money wisely and how to differentiate their wants from their needs. It was created by OCBC Bank together with the help of (from left) Seng Hui Ting, Cheryl Ho, Charmaine Thoi and Toh Yi Xuan from Yu Neng Primary School's infocomm club. The girls spent two hours a week over seven months conceptualising the game's storyline, characters and mini games. The free game can be found at the Google Play and Apple App stores.
