In the Stock Market Game (SMG), teams of 2-4 students in grades 4-12 receive a virtual $100,000 to invest in stocks and mutual funds using a real-world Internet simulation. The Stock Market Game can be taught independently or as a project-based learning activity. It can be part of a club or after-school activity. Moreover, the real-world applications the SMG utilizes are a great supplement to math, economics, finance, business and consumerism. This year’s SMG program dates are as follows:
Games Dates Fee (per team)
Fall Semester 09/18/2017 - 12/08/2017 $15/team
