The Magnetar Academy website has a new look! In early April the Magnetar Capital UChicago Financial Education Initiative unveiled a new project website at https://financialeducation.uchicago.edu. The site was created to streamline communications with students, teachers, parents, and the public, as well as to recognize the long-term partnership between Magnetar Capital and the University of Chicago to improve financial education nationwide.
The new website offers:
An overview of the Financial Education Initiative’s mission, services, and team;
An archive of Initiative newsletters;
A user-friendly teacher portal, with all curriculum materials and resources available at point-of-use;
An online, user-tested professional learning course for teachers;
A place for interested educators to see inside the materials and learn more about adopting the program;
A space for students to track ongoing opportunities and get excited.
More features will come over time, including a virtual learning community for teachers to collaborate and share resources!
All are welcome to explore the site and learn more. We encourage current Magnetar Academy teachers to sign up for a site account. Once confirmed, a site account will provide access to all the new materials, resources, and information we are making available to educators.
