Don't have $100,000 to blow on your first investment attempts? Don't worry, the nice folks at the following stock market simulations are willing to bankroll your online stock market education. Of value for both young and old, these stock market games will teach and entertain you.
EduStock was created by three students at Winston Churchill High School, in Potomac, Maryland. It won Best Entry in the 1996 ThinkQuest Contest for educational Web sites created by teens. It includes a market simulation game and a tutorial on how to pick good stocks. It also profiles a select group of well-known companies (Coca Cola, McDonalds, Nike and others) to help you start your research effort. I couldn't get the ranking of players to display correctly, but EduStock has so many excellent features, I had to share with you what kids themselves can create on the Net.
