HELPING YOUNG PEOPLE GET A HEAD START ON CAREERS
Three hundred middle school students from around the country worked on a new website created to link their interests and hobbies to future careers. The new site is offering online resources that cater to ages 11-15, seeking information about careers in science, technology, engineering, and math. Designed and developed with recommendations from teams of middle-schoolers, Funworks is not only for young people, but also for guidance counselors, teachers, media specialists & parents. Because existing career-related websites are often dense, full of statistics, and created for adults, Funworks stands out with its vibrant colors, graphics and photos, interactive games, quizzes, and more. Funworks was created by the Gender, Diversity, and Technology Institute at Education Development Center.
