In a mock stock market challenge, more than 100 students from eight different local high schools competed.
“When will I ever use this outside of school?” is a question that students frequently ask. They received an answer today.
Mark Mutton, a business instructor at Brockport High School, claimed that reading a book can only teach you so much. Mutton is aware that engaging his students in practical experiences will help them retain their knowledge.
Every “day” in this task was equal to one minute, and students had to purchase, sell, and trade stocks based on news updates from a newsletter.

Not gonna lie, I believe we performed well, according to Jazalynn, a senior at Gates Chilli High School.
As her team competed against other teams to win, Jazalynn described the action as demanding but exhilarating.
No of how they fare today, according to Mutton, they will leave with a greater understanding of how to carry out their current activities in the stock market.
Some students’ opinions on what to do after high school were even altered by this activity. Jazalynn remarked, “I wasn’t thinking about it before, but it is very interesting.
Students will be able to use these abilities in the real world even though this event was a simulation.
