Are you passionate about STEM education and careers? Would you like to help K-12 students achieve their full potential in fabulous future careers? If you also have a sense of humor, a sense of wonder, and 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 or low cost games to teachers, students and parents. We are looking for a group of recently retired teachers interested in STEM subjects (grades 3-12) to help us plan and move into the future. We need help with:
planning events to maximize educational content
writing newsletters, social media posts and new, different types of content
planning teacher interfaces and significantly expanding teacher content
assigning content to standards
development of a STEM career database
We ask for 4-6 hours of time per month, with a minimum of one video meeting per month. This volunteer opportunity is open to retired teachers or those current teachers with time to give across the US - you do NOT have to live in central Ohio to participate.
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.
