The UMB Market – an interactive financial education and nutrition exhibit UMB hosts every year at the American Royal Field Trip – is now in a virtual format! That means this activity that typically includes a hundred UMB volunteers and more than 4,000 students from across the region, will operate in a different but positive way.

And, as the saying goes, we’re turning these lemons into lemonade! The new video format means the UMB Market can reach even more students, from areas even broader than the Kansas City region, and can be completed by kids independently at home or together in a classroom setting.

While the UMB Market is designed for students in 3rd through 6th grade, kids of all ages can have fun with this video lesson.
