2021 Virtual Reality Fair

NuVista is excited to be the title sponsor for the 2021 Virtual Reality Fair, Bite of Reality.  This amazing event will be April 13th 2021

 The Richard Myles Johnson Foundation has created Bite of Reality, a remote Financial Reality Fair to help continue this incredible experience in a time of virtual events.

Seniors from Montrose High School, Olathe High School and Peak Academy will be attending this virtual event by using a hands-on app based simulation that appeals to teens while giving them a taste of real-world financial realities.  Teens are given a fictional occupation, salary, credit score, spouse, a child, student loan debt, credit card debt, and medical insurance payments.  The teens then “walk” around to various stations to purchase housing, transportation, food, clothing, and other needs.  Fortunately, the game also includes a “credit union” to help with their financial needs. 

This interactive activity will teach teens how to make financial decisions and give them a better understanding of the challenges of living on a budget.  Teens will have to deal with a pushy "car salesperson" and a commission-based "realtor", and have to weigh their wants versus their needs.  There’s even a “Fickle Finger of Fate” that will give the students unexpected “expenses” or “windfalls” – just like in real life.  

To support this amazing event, join this awesome group of Sponsors!
