Would you like to help K-12 students develop realistic dreams for fabulous future careers? If you 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 games to teachers, students and parents. We are also developing new content that is not game-based. We need 1-3 people to help write and edit the new content and also help with newsletters to volunteers and corporate partners. We will have STEM professionals providing some content which will need to be edited to remove words younger students won't understand and make certain it can all be understood. We are also looking for people that could interview STEM professionals and get down what they say on paper in an organized, understandable way. And we would really love to have someone we could throw a few sentences at that could then turn that into an interesting and engaging newsletter for other volunteers or our corporate partners, or even teachers that use our site. This is a new position, so please expect to contribute organizational ideas and ways of doing things, and expect a few growing pains while you help us get everything organized, systematized and running smoothly.

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.
