Hero and Project Description: 

Lucero’s innovative teaching idea, “Don’t Delay – Invest Today,” focuses on creating a financial lab for the students at East High School. The Voya Grant will give students the opportunity to participate in a mock stock market experience, allowing them to invest and learn real-world skills. The lab will consist of a ticker display, an interactive screen, and entry fees for the stock market simulation. Students will be able to see real-time values of the stocks in which they are investing, providing an opportunity to enhance their market knowledge by constantly showing the ups and downs of the market. The screen will display live charts, financial news and students’ investment portfolios, helping to create a financial market wall that will allow students to teach each other about their investments.
