Banzai FAQs

Banzai is 100% free for you and teachers to use in the classroom. FCFCU cares about teaching young people and adults to be financially responsible; so, we partnered with Banzai to offer financial education to our members and local schools!
Banzai emphasizes practical skills over technical know-how. We call it "learning by doing." Banzai teaches healthy spending habits, banking basics to children, planning ahead, insurance, and a lot more.
Banzai is flexible—it saves your progress, so return to it any time. For the Banzai Teen and Junior products, plan 45 minutes to an hour to complete each course. For Banzai Plus, consider an hour.
In Banzai, there are three types of courses: young children (ages 8-11), teens (ages 13-18), and adults (targeting ages 18+).

Banzai is for Everyone


Most Banzai courses are available in English and Spanish. Spanish versions include the same decisions, quizzes, test questions, and interactive gameplay as the English versions.

Special Education

Banzai Junior uses the same core principles that are taught in Teen & Plus, but the requirements are simpler. If your child is struggling with the advanced courses, try Banzai Junior to start.

Gifted and Talented

Does your child need an extra challenge? Try using a course designed for older students. Plus is the most challenging interactive game, and the Banzai Library includes content suited for all ages including adults.


Vision-impaired students and parents can access the content on using most screen readers, and Banzai courses can be completed without a mouse.
