Assessing Risk @ Capital One Café

Seniors in the Economics class met with a financial consultant at the Capital One Café. In this STEAM course, students are pursuing the guiding question, how do we make choices in a world of limited resources and limited time?. In the first unit of this course, students have been analyzing the value of risks, taking into consideration time, cost, and utility. As a part of this first unit, students have also been calculating and assessing the value of college. The experts at Capital One Café stressed the importance of short- and long-term goal-setting, saving for emergencies, and finding happiness and balance in all of it.


The purpose of this Field Experience is to investigate the guiding question, how do you determine value?.


The students will talk with a financial consultant at Capital One Café to learn more about value, utility, and risk.
