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, stud ents and parents. We are looking for STEM professionals (particularly IT pros) to help develop game concepts. A game concept is a 1-2 page outline describing what the student will do, what the educational goals are and how they will be met. This position certainly requires creativity and flexibility, but games need to meet educational standards (Next Generation Science Standards), need to be on subjects and include content that teachers want to teach and students need to learn, and need to respect the needs of the classroom teacher (aka no shooting games). Furthermore, they need to be about careers that are in-demand, and fundable by corporate America. Our games are expensive to develop, so game concepts must encourage students to envision themselves in STEM careers that corporations want AND are interesting enough for students to become engaged with those careers. If that sounds exciting, please help us out by sharing your career and helping write/develop a game concept, and share professional connections to help fund it.
