Have you heard about Bitcoin investments yet? How about Tesla investments? How’s your Grandparents’ GE stock doing? Most of us hear stories about the ups and downs of stock market every day, but don’t fully understand the basic principles of investing. Students will be introduced to the investing landscape (stocks, bonds, crypto assets, and much more) and the nuts and bolts of stock investing. We will cover the why, what, and how of investing, including concepts like investment goals, risk tolerance, valuation metrics, portfolio diversification, the strategies, and mechanics of investing, as well as the risks inherent in different investments. We will have fun practicing these skills with hands-on mock trades. If you have a curious middle or high schooler who is looking to learn about investing wisely, this is the week for them.
