There’s a trading floor in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn, and although no real trades go through the room, it’s just as high-tech and impressive.

The “floor” in question is actually a classroom in the Brooklyn Academy of Global Finance high school, equipped with a real-time stock ticker, touchscreen LCD monitors to track stocks and computer modules to help students acclimate to the business and finance-focused curriculum of the school.

“Our real mission and vision is to provide students with a global perspective,” said the schools’ principal Kavita Gupta. And “the trading room floor is a resource to provide foundational skills in finance.”
