EVESHAM — The South Jersey Innovation Center, home to STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) child enrichment programs, recently hosted the Voorhees Cub Scout Pack 127 for its stock market challenge, an educational program that teaches kids financial literacy and helps them learn about the business world in a fun way.

Each Scout was given $1 million to invest and create a five-company portfolio, with the ability to make a maximum of up to two trades during the contest.

The investor with the most valuable portfolio was declared the winner. Cub Scout Johnny Liu took home the prize by increasing his investment by more than 50 percent.

The center’s Young Investors Club Stock Market Challenge is one of its most popular classes, addressing fundamental business and investment concepts in conjunction with the impact of technology, innovation, politics and more.

The six-week class, which kicks off Feb. 15, covers financial analysis, including revenue, expense, sales, profit and loss as well as markets, market dynamics, valuations, risks, equity and bonds.

The center offers comprehensive enrichment and competitive programs that help children develop life skills, critical thinking and creativity through well-designed STEM programs and activities for students of all levels starting at 6 years old.
