Magnetar Team Challenge

Saturday April 27th, 2019 at Navy Pier


  • The Magnetar Academy Team Challenge was a unique opportunity for my students to get the feel of how a trading floor works in real time. The students were immersed into the experience of being a stock traders: researching data, developing rationales for decisions, deciding strategies based on economic trends, and making quick, well-informed decisions. The students were engaged, actively participating, and applying what they learned in the Magnetar Youth Investment Academy. A fabulous day of learning and fun!

  • And not only is Magnetar helping with class and curriculum, but I feel like the Foundation is also giving back to the community with the $5,000.00 – the prizes that were given at the Magnetar Academy Team Challenge, and then that money can be used to help them build their programs.

  • My students who attended led a short discussion on the Magnetar Academy Team Challenge after we returned and shared their enthusiasm for all the activities they did. All of them recommended the Team Challenge to their classmates!
