June 13, 2014

K-12 Resources for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Education
http://www.nsfresources.org/home.cfm

Resources and findings generated through educational research and development projects funded in part by the National Science Foundation can help inform states and school systems that are developing strategies for improving K-12 STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education. This site contains an initial sampling of resources and findings from NSF-funded projects. Their proposals underwent merit review; subsequent annual and final project reports were reviewed and approved. The resulting research-based resources have been pilot- or field-tested in schools or with teachers. The websites identified may offer additional information derived from their development and use with students, teachers, or other stakeholders. These resources and websites represent the work, findings, and conclusions of the Principal Investigators and do not necessarily reflect the views of the NSF.

Learn How To Become

Learn How To Become
http://www.learnhowtobecome.org/

LearnHowToBecome.org began in late 2013 with Doug and Wes. Our mission is to help students (or other aspiring professionals) understand what it takes to land their perfect career, from picking the right school all the way to climbing the company ladder. They are passionate about creating a one-stop, comprehensive resource that can guide individuals through each of the steps they need to take to begin, further, or change their career path. So many websites publish data to facilitate college and career decisions, but fail to go beyond that first dimension. LearnHowToBecome.org does things differently. They work alongside educational and employment experts to make sure information is accurate and up-to-date. They also work with content and design specialists to maximize readability and comprehension for multiple educational levels. To summarize, the LearnHowToBecome.org team creates expert-driven educational content, and presents it both logically and creatively to maximize understanding and engagement.
