As educators you can give your students exposure to a real-world view of what engineers and scientists do. With the help of Free Range Kids you can engage your students in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) content, build skills, and show them the practical career paths that they can aspire to.
The program is designed to help your students explore the diversity of engineering and science careers and discover a whole new world of future job opportunities…ones that they might not otherwise have imagined.
The Free Range Kids Program is designed to expose middle and high school students to a variety of disciplines, technologies and potential career paths within the science, engineering, technology and mathematics disciplines. These programs aim to develop our emerging technology talent pipepline by inspiring students to seek technical careers while helping enhance the competitive advantage of our workforce.
Jason Bittner, CEO of Free Range Kids, says: “I wanted to give back, to do what so many of my teachers, mentors, and colleagues had done for me to inspire my journey in technology.”
With the Free Range Kids Program, Jason envisions a way to create as many future engineers and scientists as possible by learning today’s leading edge technologies and teaching about future career opportunities while building our next-generation competitive workforce.
“We want to inspire our kids to choose a career that excites them. If we inspire just ONE student to decide to become an engineer, a technologist, or a scientist… one that might not otherwise have chosen to do so…and they make a discovery that changes the world… ALL of this will have been worth it!”
