STEM Education and College/Career Readiness
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
What innovative ideas!
…this is one of the most innovative and original ways to get this content across to young people that I have seen.
…are well on your way to helping many students as they explore what they will do with their lives beyond school…
The concept is wonderful…
I think you have an interesting approach that is not being met by many school programs.
I like what I am seeing, it would fit middle school very well…
Timely, relevant and NEEDED.
…am excited to see how much effort you’ve put into inspiring others to pursue careers in science.
… 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…
This seems to be the forefront of a new wave of education – outside of school learning. This career goal program would dovetail perfectly.
As a father of a 9-year old…I think this is a project that tries to address a huge need.
I am very impressed, motivated and excited by the content on your website…I am seriously impressed.
I love it.

Here are some fun and entertaining ideas to make your holiday a showcase for budding scientists!

Along the same lines of teaching sustainability and gardening, this lesson from Education World reminds students of how the knowledge of agriculture was a shared offering from the Native Americans and helped early colonies thrive in different climates and regions.
