    My kids said it is asking for an activation code for them to take test.
    • Strivven Media LLC - Rhonda,
      Could you please contact me at 828-545-8260.
      I just tested the account and it seem to be working here. Just need to know if it's happening for all of your students or for some.
      Thank you,

    Women in STEM a new idea? Only if 4000 years is new. Girls… get your science on!

    It’s a fact that way more men than women pursue technical careers, and more men than women go for degrees in science and technology in college. But have you ever wondered why? Seriously, what is the deal? Well, the deal is stereotypes.

    Okay, so everyone knows that boys are better than math, right? Nope, that’s wrong! [ http://www.thejanedough.com/why-so-few-women-... ] The truth is that girls start out better at math, but end up putting it aside due to expectations, or peer pressure, or even being guided away from science and tech by misinformed people who believe the stereotype. And what happens next? Girls start to believe they are no good at math and science. [ http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2009/05/... ]

    VirtualJobShadow.com is here to tell all the girls out there that you are good at science, math, computers, and technology if you want to be! If you are interested in technology, don’t let anyone push you away from it. If you are diggin’ on math, your future in STEM can be real-life π in the sky with a fun, super rewarding and good paying job.

    More truth: Women have ALWAYS been involved in science and technology. Check out this website called 4000 Years of Women in Science. [ http://www.astr.ua.edu/4000WS/ ] We just stumbled on this site the other day, and it has some amazing info even though it also has some seriously old school web design going on. Did you know that Grace Hopper (born 1906 – died 1992) was a pioneer in developing the first computers? Or that biologist Nettie Stevens (born 1861 – died 1912) discovered how X and Y chromosome pairings determine if a baby will be a boy or a girl?

    What something more modern? Put your earbuds in and check out these public radio programs that feature women in science careers.[ http://www.womeninscience.org/index.php ] And watch videos made by girls in junior high and high school who are on their way to becoming scientists, computer programmers, and more.
    [ http://forgirlsinscience.org/compete-achieve/ ]

    Alright girls… you convinced now? Go get your science on!

    And one last note for the guys reading this. Don’t let stereotypes push YOU away from pursing higher education or a career that you know you’ll love. There is no such thing as “man’s work” and “women’s work”. The only thing that matters is what interests you and motivates you. Peace out.

    Get Real, and Then Learn to Code

    For the first VJS blog, let’s get things started with a Reality Check. Everyone has dreams every once in a while of making it big, of being the next Adrian Peterson, or Adele, or whoever is the flavor of the month. Or, if you are old school like me, being the next Michael Jordan, or Prince, or Julia Roberts. Anyway, the point is that you had better not get hung up on daydreams when you have a big, Real Life waiting to happen for you. But to give you a little more proof, check out some numbers:

    0.03% of high school men’s basketball players play professionally, and by pro we are talking NBA, CBA, NBDL, Russia, China, Europe, and other countries incredibly difficult to spell.
    0.03% of high school women’s basketball players play pro.
    0.08% of high school football players play professionally.

    Do I need to go on? If you want you can check out this page for a few more numbers. But keep in mind that even if you are the bomb, all it takes is one severe injury and it could mean game over.

    What about a career as a rap artist, or Hollywood actor, or one of those people that are famous just because they are famous (you know who I mean)? The U.S. Census (the official head count of the U.S.) determined that in 2012 we had 313,914,040 people living here. And yeah, not everyone wants fame and fortune, but do you see that number? You may be a supreme talent, have mad skills, but numerically speaking, the odds are stacked heavily against you. I am not saying that it’s impossible for you to become a famous singer, baseball player, or television personality. But what I am saying is I wouldn’t bet my car on it, and you shouldn’t bet the rest of your life on it.

    So, what is a good bet? STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) is a good bet. And computer programming is a really good bet! So while you are preparing for superstardom, be smart and take some technology courses and you’ll never regret it. If you get a degree in computer technology, the odds are high that you’ll have a fat paycheck auto-depositing into your bank account twice a month. Listen up! If you can learn to read, you can learn to code! That goes for you too girls. Almost every part of life – entertainment, construction, banking and finance, medicine, communications, transportation – is powered by computer programs and technology. Don’t believe me? Then watch this video to check out what Chris Bosh, will.i.am, Bill Gates (Microsoft founder and philanthropist), and Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook) and others have to say about it. http://www.youtube.com/embed/nKIu9yen5nc?wmod...
