Connecting Students to Their Futures

Imagine an app or site that takes the most effective parts of LinkedIn, Tinder, Snapchat, and can connect students to a date with their destiny. If you haven’t seen it yet, STEAMrole.org has a vision to change the STEM world and provide students direct links to the jobs of today and tomorrow. I have been using the quote, “You can’t be what you can’t see” [Marian Wright-Edelman] for years and challenging everyone to come up with an innovative way to helps students see what their future holds; STEAMrole has not only taken the challenge on, but has the potential to take the solution to the next level!

What is truly incredible is that the app and site doesn’t just show students careers, but helps them figure out how to make that goal a reality. What to grow up to be like… well through STEAMrole students can follow the career roadmap of any STEAM professional and learn the skills required to be hired. The site will showcase what skills are needed AND provide pathways to develop those skills!

As they say, its not about what you want to be, but who you want to be!
