Springwise recently ran a post about a new cloud service that enables students to showcase their STEM skills to prospective employers:
We’ve already seen a social network for kids that enables them to showcase their DIY talents, but our latest spotting aims to go one step further. GradFly is a platform for young students to build an online portfolio of their science projects, in order to attract colleges and employers when they leave school.
Young people taking science, technology, engineering and mathematics courses and participating in computing and robotics clubs at school can often mention these on CVs and application forms, but they don’t really tell the full story behind the projects they’ve actually worked on. Much like Behance does for creative students, GradFly enables users to upload multimedia galleries of their previous high school or college initiatives to showcase their talents in one place. As well as benefitting from the support of a community of peers, GradFly also acts as a place for education institutions and companies to scout out interesting and groundbreaking work, which would otherwise be hidden behind school walls.
