This high energy event is designed to simulate the excitement of a real life trading floor. Teams of 4 to 5 students will learn to work together, leverage each other’s strengths, and use critical thinking skills while analyzing news articles and data during a high stakes and fierce competition.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Each team is issued $1,000,000 of “mock stock” and must buy and sell shares in fictitious companies throughout a simulated 60-day trading period. Trading is fast, fun, and furious with a new day starting every 60 seconds! The goal of each team is to achieve the greatest rate of return on investment by the end of the simulated trading session that will last a total of 90 minutes.
Not only will students compete in the hands on experiential learning event that is the Stock Market Challenge simulation, but they will also complete five in-class lessons and be introduced to the importance of investing and saving, create team-building skills, and gain the knowledge to build a solid financial foundation for their future!
