                          THE FUNWORKS

                   http://www.thefunworks.org

  Are you a teacher looking for real-life examples of how
  people use science, technology, engineering and mathematics
  (STEM) concepts in their careers? Are you an after-school
  program instructor looking for career education resources?
  Are you a counselor, parent or adult of influence looking
  for ways to help motivate and engage a young boy or girl in
  math or science?

  The Career Resources Network project is pleased to announce
  the launch of "The FunWorks," a career exploration digital
  library for middle school youth (ages 11-14 yrs). Designed to
  capture imaginations and direct youth toward careers in STEM,
  the FunWorks is funded by the National Science Foundation as
  part of its National Science Digital Library.

  The FunWorks has been developed by the Gender, Diversities &
  Technology Institute at Education Development Center Inc., in
  collaboration with a youth design team.
