Virginia Aerospace Science and Technology Scholars (VASTS) Program Introduces Pathevo® to STEM All-Stars

ROCKVILLE, Md., Feb. 21, 2012 — (PRNewswire) — Owen Software, producer of Pathevo®, the leading education and career planning web service for science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) disciplines announced today that the Virginia Aerospace Science and Technology Scholars (VASTS)  program has incorporated Owen Software Pathevo® into its Spring 2012 curriculum.

The Virginia Aerospace Science and Technology Scholars (VASTS) program is an interactive on-line science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) learning experience highlighted by a seven-day residential summer academy at NASA Langley Research Center (LaRC) in Hampton, Virginia. Students selected to participate in the program are immersed in NASA-related research through interaction with scientists, engineers and technologists.  Pathevo®, Owen Software's flagship web service, was developed in collaboration with the NASA Space Grant program and is the only education and career planning web service uniquely geared towards STEM disciplines.

This semester, for the first time, VASTS students will utilize Pathevo to create personalized STEM education and career plans based on their individual goals, timeline, interests and personal preferences.  Each student's Pathevo plans contain detailed pathways with milestones to guide them step by step to achieve their defined goals.  "We're very excited to provide our students with innovative technology that enables them to better understand the range of STEM education and career options available to them," stated Mary Sandy, Director, Virginia Space Grant Program.  "Pathevo encourages students to explore and successfully pursue STEM academic and professional careers, underscoring the VASTS mission."

"We are delighted to support the VASTS initiative and to encourage students to embrace STEM education and career paths across the country," stated Dr. Ade Oni, Chief Executive Officer of Owen Software.  VASTS students begin by using Pathevo to assess their interests in STEM education and career paths and to create personal profiles.  Pathevo subsequently matches each profile with specific STEM academic disciplines, curricula, institutions and career pathways.  Students can explore thousands of education and career options and utilizing rich media tools, view videos and recordings that give them first-hand exposure to careers.  Pathevo empowers students to make informed choices in selecting the STEM pathway that matches their interests and goals.
