Teachers & Industry Pros Create Challenges Together
LEVERS works with your school to identify local companies with quality career opportunities. Once a partnership is established, LEVERS works with a pro at that company to create challenges for students. Teachers can then browse these challenges, select which to implement in their classroom and customize to meet their needs.
Students Select a Challenge and Customize
Students are added to challenges by their teachers. They create teams. Next, they create a timeline with clear milestones, tasks that map to trackable competencies and schedule regular check ins that reflect the real world. Teachers sign off on the timeline and proposed deliverables.
Students Iterate Together
Students work through their timeline together. They complete the tasks that they are assigned, iterate on feedback from their teacher, and build up to their final challenge deliverable.
Teachers Support Progress
Teachers are pushed notifications for all milestones waiting for approval or grading. They are notified if students miss deadlines and can see how students are working with student leaders.
Top Projects are Shared with Pros
