STEM Education and College/Career Readiness
I think you’ve got a great idea–I especially like the music…
I think you have an interesting approach that is not being met by many school programs.
Timely, relevant and NEEDED.
…the program is…would really give the students a clear picture of where they are and what they need…
The concept is wonderful…
What innovative ideas!
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
I love it.
…are well on your way to helping many students as they explore what they will do with their lives beyond school…
… I love the idea and many schools really need something to help them motivate students.
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.
…this is one of the most innovative and original ways to get this content across to young people that I have seen.
I like what I am seeing, it would fit middle school very well…
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
…am excited to see how much effort you’ve put into inspiring others to pursue careers in science.
The Lifestyle Learning® Career Readiness 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 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
