What? The Stock Market Game (SMG) is a program designed to introduce students in grades 4-12 to the global economy and the world of finance and investing. Working in groups, students make decisions about how to invest $100,000 and then follow the markets at real-time prices! We are happy to announce that a renewal of funding from the Investor Protection Unit of the Delaware Department of Justice allows us to continue offering participation in the Stock Market Game for $5.00 per team.
