Middle Schoolers Learn Bitcoin Lessons – Bitcoin Magazine



This is an opinion editorial by Ryan Brisch, Anthony Feliciano and Mark Maraia, who recently spent a few weeks helping 85 middle schoolers operate a pop-up shop running on Bitcoin’s Lightning Network.

On November 18, 2022, about 85 students braved a cold snowy Friday morning at STRIVE Prep – Lake middle school in Denver, Colorado to participate in a unique program. Even though they got a late start because of snowfall the night before, there was a sense of eager anticipation in the air.

Ryan Brisch, a Denver Bitcoiner, had been frequently talking to his significant other about issues Bitcoin could help solve, or some new Bitcoin product that he was excited about. His wife, Nicole, is a sixth grade math teacher at STRIVE Prep and had started to respond that he should come and speak to her class about some of the basic mathematical foundations of Bitcoin.
