JA Crash The Classroom with HSBC Volunteers 

 

Junior Achievement and HSBC teamed up to "Crash the Classroom" and converted a middle school classroom into a "global marketplace." The video reveals students' general lack of familiarity with other cultures – even those commonly seen in their own city - prior to the experiment. But interacting with other cultures changes their perspective in important ways!
