Description of my final project

Project Name: Kid Invest

Kid Invest is a children's application targeted towards 7+ years old youth. This investing and business simulator will teach kids to learn, play, and practice investing at an early age. This includes a learning platform where kids can learn fiscal knowledge and tips for being a successful money-maker. After registration, users receive initial funding to start their lemonade stand. The lemonade stand will operate like a regular company where users will need to purchase supplies, expand the store, and sell to customers. With earnings, kids will invest in local kid-friendly companies created using a real-time stock market API where the businesses simulate actual stock fluctuations. This application also incorporates Java, Spring Boot, MySQL, JavaScript, HTML, CSS and Bootstrap.
