SI:REDUX – who, what and why?

Last updated: 21 June 2021

SI:REDUX is an online stock market trading game designed to be used as a learning aid by teachers of students aged around 13-19 years old. The game is open to anyone, but is primarily aimed at teachers of secondary school pupils in the UK to use as a replacement for the Student Investor Challenge which is sadly not going ahead in 2020/21.

SI:REDUX is now closed for 2021. If you would like to see SI:REDUX return for the 2021/22 academic season please contact us.

Key features

  • Simple: SI:REDUX is designed to be easy to understand and easy to integrate with your lessons. It’s not a fully featured stock market simulation, it’s first and foremost a learning tool to help teach the basics of how stock markets work.
  • Designed for teachers: We will be including a host of supporting materials to support use of SI:REDUX.
  • 2020-friendly: We’re living in difficult and unpredictable times, so we’re designing SI:REDUX to be as flexible as possible for easy use in groups face-to-face, over Zoom lessons or individually online by students.
  • Privacy respecting: Websites are increasingly data-hungry and it’s not a trend that we like, so we promise to only collect the data that we need to run the challenge. That means the bare minimum from teachers and nothing at all from your students, ever. We also don’t allow any third-party tracking on the site – no Google, no Facebook, no Twitter, nothing. read more
