The Stock Market Game™ is a project-based financial education program widely used in grades 4-12 classrooms nationwide to teach students the importance of saving and investing by building their financial literacy skills through an integrated curriculum and investing online market simulation. Student teams receive a virtual cash account of $100,000 to create an investment portfolio comprised of bonds, common stocks listed on national exchanges, exchange traded funds, and mutual funds with the goal of developing portfolios that outperform portfolios of other student teams.
