STEM Education and College/Career Readiness
The concept is wonderful…
…are well on your way to helping many students as they explore what they will do with their lives beyond school…
…am excited to see how much effort you’ve put into inspiring others to pursue careers in science.
I am very impressed, motivated and excited by the content on your website…I am seriously impressed.
…this is one of the most innovative and original ways to get this content across to young people that I have seen.
I love it.
What innovative ideas!
I think you’ve got a great idea–I especially like the music…
As a former member of a STEM teaching team, I understand and appreciate the transformative power this kind of curriculum can have on a classroom
I like what I am seeing, it would fit middle school very well…
I think you have an interesting approach that is not being met by many school programs.
As a father of a 9-year old…I think this is a project that tries to address a huge need.
This seems to be the forefront of a new wave of education – outside of school learning. This career goal program would dovetail perfectly.
Lifestyle Learning is at the forefront of an educational revolution
Timely, relevant and NEEDED.
… I love the idea and many schools really need something to help them motivate students.
…the program is…would really give the students a clear picture of where they are and what they need…
FREE International Learning Event-The “Hour of Code” Coming Dec 5-11!
Are you interested in teaching your students how to code? Have you been hearing so much about how coding is critical for the success of future generations? The Hour of Code is a global learning event hosted by Code.org where over 180 countries participate in activities where they can learn to code. From December 5-11, one hour tutorials will be made available in over 45 languages for those eager to learn coding-as young as age 4 to adulthood! This is an opportunity to enhance computer science instruction at all learning levels, engage students, and get them thinking about the variety of applications of coding and programming.
You can sign up your classroom here to get resources on coding tutorials, lesson plans, and activities. Activities can be completed on computer, individually, or in pairs/groups. There are even offerings that are “unplugged” when access to technology may be limited. The most important thing is to get students involved and thinking about the vast possibilities of coding and their own ability to program! Teachers can even print certificates for students when they’ve completed participation in the event. Are you not a teacher, but interested in computer science education? Perhaps you have a background in programming? There are opportunities to volunteer in local classrooms for the event as well!
