Career Choices

Who do you want to be? What do you want to do?

High School should be a time in life when kids begin exploring potential careers, but instead they spend long school days wading through subjects like algebra and literature - subjects with little relevance to real-world work. Instead of such subjects, kids need practical, hands on, real-world inspired experiences to help them try on careers and see how they fit.

Think you might want to be a doctor? Be one in simulation. Talk to simulated patients. Do some lab work. Read an MRI. Diagnose their illnesses.

Think you might want to be a software developer. Work in a team to develop a mobile smartphone app.

Engines for Education now offers a wide-range of real-life inspired, simulated job experiences (and more are on the way). In as few as 2-3 weeks full time, kids get real world opportunities and a true sense of what a career in a given field might be like. Check out the experiences available now:
