KUSA - Of course the government shutdown combined with the debt ceiling debate are weighing on the markets this Monday morning, but there's a group of students in Colorado learning firsthand about the ups and down of the markets through a real-world investing program called the Stock Market Experience.
Because the Stock Market Experience is an online program and available to students all over Colorado, many students have been able to participate.
The Stock Market Experience for students in third grade through 12th grade. It's a program from the Colorado Council for Economic Education
