STEM careers are projected to grow to more than 9 million between 2012 and 2022. How will you increase student interest in STEM and introduce them to career paths in that sector? Educators will receive access to innovative web-based, student-driven resources at NO COST which takes students into the science, technology, engineering, and math behind their world, and introduces them to inspiring careers they never knew existed. 

Endeavor: STEM Literacy and Career Exploration: (grades 6-9) this course takes students into the science, technology, engineering, and math behind their world, and introduces them to inspiring careers they never knew existed. The resource is student-driven and has assessments embedded into them enabling students to go at their own pace as the teacher can be a facilitator in the classroom and see measurable outcomes from student work.
