STEM Education and College/Career Readiness
I think you’ve got a great idea–I especially like the music…
…this is one of the most innovative and original ways to get this content across to young people that I have seen.
This seems to be the forefront of a new wave of education – outside of school learning. This career goal program would dovetail perfectly.
…am excited to see how much effort you’ve put into inspiring others to pursue careers in science.
What innovative ideas!
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.
The concept is wonderful…
…the program is…would really give the students a clear picture of where they are and what they need…
I am very impressed, motivated and excited by the content on your website…I am seriously impressed.
I like what I am seeing, it would fit middle school very well…
… I love the idea and many schools really need something to help them motivate students.
I love it.

About The Lifestyle Learning® Application
The Lifestyle Learning® application is an innovative “career” experience that focuses on the “what’s in it for me” for young people. It is a combination career assessment, career information database, online game and data repository. The application is currently in development.
The application is built around two key concepts, Student Motivation and Student Engagement:
Student motivation naturally has to do with students’ desire to participate in the learning process. But it also concerns the reasons or goals that underlie their involvement or noninvolvement in academic activities.
Student engagement occurs when “students make a psychological investment in learning. They try hard to learn what school offers. They take pride not simply in earning the formal indicators of success (grades), but in understanding the material and incorporating or internalizing it in their lives.”
Benefits of the Lifestyle Learning® application

- Provides a motivator to engage students in math and science
- Provides a tool that can be used in various learning environments
- Collects data on motivation, influence and perception
- Identifies students that could go to college but were otherwise not identified
- Increases the pipeline for STEM degree programs
- Better prepares our young people for career success
