SIF Attendance Contest
Winners Provided an Unforgettable Experience at Towson University
On June 12th, Fallstaff Elementary/Middle School students from Ms. Ventre’s seventh grade SIF class visited the T. Rowe Price Finance Lab at Towson University. They were given access to Bloomberg Stock Screening Software and participated in an activity led by Merrie Zhang and several others from T. Rowe Price’s Investment Fellowship Program.
The group showed students how to use the Bloomberg Software and tested their knowledge of our curriculum.
Students were impressed with the lab’s large monitors and tickers as they navigated the site, researched the stock performance of several companies, read about company executives, and compared companies to the industry average. They were equally fascinated to learn that one can research celebrities, sports figures, politicians – anyone who has created a Bloomberg Profile.
The lab session ended with a question and answer period with the T. Rowe Price fellows. Fallstaff students had many questions about the fellows’ college experiences and how they became interested in finance. A big thank you to T. Rowe Price for sponsoring the trip and to the T. Rowe Price Investment Fellowship Program for taking the time to not only lead the session, but share personal stories with the kids!
