Become one of the 'characters' that supports Edheads!

Do you have fun working with K-12 students and families? Do you like to make great events happen to raise money for a worthy cause? If you also have a sense of humor, a sense of wonder, and little time to give, 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 or low cost games (with cartoon characters) to teachers, students and parents. We are looking for people to implement events for Edheads. We have several events planned but new ones will be coming up regularly in the future. Duties would include, but are not limited to: attending events to lead student groups or hands on activities; sharing professional information and educational pathways with interested students; setting up or cleaning up after an event; working check in lines or manning tables with Edheads information; acting in various roles, as assigned; sharing constructive feedback on recent events and future plans. We ask that you sign up for 1-2 events annually to remain active in our contact list. However, you can decide which events interest you the most, and sign up to attend. Training for all these events occurs just before the event starts or occurs just before the shift you signed up for begins. We are particularly interested in IT and engineering professionals for upcoming events, but all STEM professionals or interested adults are welcome. We have a large event, Super STEM Saturday, Nov 2, 12:15 to 4:30 that we are looking for 10 volunteers to help set up and break down. Contact us today to begin having fun with the future of STEM!

Mission Statement

Edheads' mission is to ignite the imagination of the scientists and engineers of tomorrow through engaging and interactive minds-on experiences.

Description

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.
