My Students

My students will be participating in the Stock Market Game this year. Each student will be able to explore the fundamentals of personal finance and investing while using and practicing other core subject content areas.

The students have created their teams and will be working together to build and manage an investment portfolio in a real-world, dynamic marketplace.

They will be able to analyze and make decisions, as well as work to together to implement investment strategies. This simulation is an excellent way for our students to engage in a practical, virtual environment, and gain hands-on experience and knowledge in a fun way.

My Project

When the project is fully funded, the students will have their entry fees waived and will have the opportunity to participate in the 10-week, hands-on virtual simulation. This will allow them to obtain real-world experience and gain the knowledge to invest on their own.

The students will not only be practicing their decision-making skills and implement investment strategies, but they will also be able to enhance their collaboration and communication skills, as they will be working in teams during the 10-week simulation.The Stock Market Game is an excellent way for the students to learn about financial literacy and give them the knowledge to prepare for their future.
