Are you passionate about STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) education or STEM careers? Would you like to help K-12 students develop realistic dreams for fabulous future careers? If you also have a sense of humor, a sense of wonder, are a wee bit quirky, and have a little time to give each month, then Edheads is the place for you! Edheads is a 501c3 non-profit organization that ties K-12 classroom curricula to real world challenges and careers by providing free games to teachers, students and parents. We are looking for someone like you to be a representative on our Board Directors while also reviewing expenses, disbursements and financial documents and helping to craft the annual budet, while offering additional ideas to help us meet our mission. Someone with connections (network) to share is greatly preferred. This position requires 4-6 hours of your time each month.
Edheads' mission is to ignite the imagination of the scientists and engineers of tomorrow through engaging and interactive minds-on experiences.
Edheads creates unique, free or low cost Web experiences designed to make hard-to-teach science, technology, engineering, and math concepts understandable. We deliver in-depth content that allows K-12 students and users of all ages to explore and learn intuitively in an online environment. Edheads' innovative learning experiences connect the required classroom curriculum to exciting real-world applications, allowing students to "test drive" potential STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) careers they may not have previously considered for themselves, igniting an interest in STEM and providing motivation for academic success.
Students and teachers deserve the highest quality learning experiences, and Edheads continually strives to make this possible, providing excellence in online learning that is free to all users. Edheads aims to demonstrate to students that anyone, regardless of gender, ethnicity, or economic background, can take an interest in STEM subjects and pursue careers in STEM.
