Learn & Earn App
Students in Vigor’s Programming and Software Development class evaluated the features and user- friendly functions of the Learn and Earn app for possible use in future Junior Achievement programs. The Learn & Earn app was created for students to learn financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship through micro-courses and lessons. By completing courses, students unlock money contributed by their parents/guardians that’s later invested into the real stock market through ETFs and fractional shares. Pictured below testing the app is Programming and Software Development academy student, Kristopher Agee.
