Rob Sharps, retired financial services executive, served as the classroom advisor. He has partnered with SHS business teachers Lisa Bender and Athena Wilson for the past 21 years. “This hands-on research project engages students in real-time, real-world learning. Even though they are investing virtually, students are connecting their decisions to the global economy; they’re following economic events and they’re developing critical thinking skills as they manage a stock portfolio for 10 weeks. It’s a win-win situation” said Lisa Bender.
