Learn to use the Stock Market GameTM as a valuable educational tool for both teachers and students! Students manage a virtual investment portfolio and compete with teams across the state. Students learn saving and investing, sharpen math and research skills, and experience market forces at work. After participating in the SMG, independent studies show an increase in math scores for elementary and middle school students. It is also a proven way to learn many of the SOL in the high school economics and personal finance course. No prior knowledge of the stock market is necessary.


Fee: NO CHARGE


Additional Information:

Friday before the event, you will receive an email with detailed directions for parking and locating the building.
