This unique day of activities gives students and adults alike the chance to experience a live simulation of Wall Street Stock Exchange. The afternoon is all about the students forming teams and competing in a fast-paced stock market game of buying, selling, and trading.
After completing two classroom lessons, the students meet in person to compete using a high-tech stock market simulation. Teams are given $1,000,000 to invest in 25 fictitious stocks. With trading days lasting just 60-90 seconds, the goal is to see the highest return in two hours by making the best decisions during the frantic 60 "days."
In the evening, adult participants take over, complete with heavy appetizers and open bar. Even though actual stocks are not being traded, there is no shortage of serious competition, as four-person teams compete to be named the smartest investors in Sioux Falls! Most importantly, each corporate team who registers makes it possible for a team of students to get this hands-on financial experience.
