    High Schools Have Biology and Chemistry Labs.
    It’s time they have FINANCE LABs.

    While some high school students pursue careers in biology or chemistry, EVERY student will someday have a bank account and a credit card. EVERY student will get a job and pay taxes.  EVERY student will buy or lease a car and have to buy auto insurance.  EVERY student will rent an apartment or buy a house. And, hopefully, EVERY student will enjoy a comfortable retirement.   So why don’t schools require EVERY student to take a class in a Personal Finance Lab?

    Let us help you teach ALL of your students these real-world, practical skills in your Personal Finance Lab.

    EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING AT ITS BEST

    High School Finance Lab

    With a high school FINANCE LAB, you can make sure ALL of your students graduate being financially literate.  Engage your Personal Finance, Economics, and Business students with real-world applications in an exciting Wall Street-style classroom.  Our Finance Lab package is a combination of hardware and a customizable stock market game that integrates over 125 lessons and activities aligned to national standards. When you add a Finance Lab to your school, you will have your students lining up in the hallway to take a class in your Lab.

    MONEY TALKS, STUDENTS LISTEN.

    High School Stock Lab

    Every student wants to have more money and learn how to save and invest!  The streaming tickers and the colorful LCD screens will pique their curiosity and lure them in.  And when your students sit down in your Financial Literacy Lab they will be given a virtual $100,000 to invest in the stock market on www.PersonalFinanceLab.com..

All 125+ lessons and activities are aligned to national standards, but all have a personal finance theme. When students login to check on their stock portfolio they will be reminded of their progress through the Assignment.

    YES! THREE SUBJECTS IN ONE SITE.

    Finance Lab Assignments

    Three different subjects can be taught through the same website (PersonalFinanceLab.com and each class will have access to the articles and activities aligned to the relevant national standards. With this site, most of the articles and activities have a financial literacy theme to help them with their understanding of the markets, savings, and investing.  Along the way, students will also learn how current events, the government, politics, and large businesses can impact the financial markets and their own portfolios.

    Self-Grading Pop Quizzes Insure Student Mastery

    Finance Lab Pop Quiz

    From the teacher perspective, our site is self-paced so that students can work at their own speed completing the articles and activities. The site is also self-grading, so that teachers will know which students have completed which articles and activities because every task on the site has a pop-quiz at the end. Students must show mastery of the subject in order to get credit for completing that task!
