'ChoreoGraph' is a new app that encourages students to explore careers in technology and related fields. In recent years, educators in the US have struggled to get more kids interested in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). This app leverages the way kids play as a means of encouraging them to explore careers in these areas.

ChoreoGraph is one of a series of apps called 'Noticing Tools.' Collectively, these digital tools leverage the way children play in order to teach math and science concepts. The apps function as exploratory tools that prompt children to learn more about the world around them. The goal is to show students how these kinds of lessons could be applied to careers in technology and other STEM fields.
