STEVE MOZENA WANTS TO HELP YOUR KIDS!:
By giving them extra tools to help them become better students and live the American Dream.
For example, STEVE MOZENA wants to have the Junior Achievement Business program, see www.ja.org, as a part of the curriculum for the entire K-12 Long Beach Unified School District. This program not only teaches kids money management but teaches them how to start and run a business.
With this program, the students will learn and grow into future Entrepreneurs and Business Owners creating jobs not only for themselves but for others as well.
STEVE MOZENA participated in this program when it was just for high school students as an off campus extracurricular activity. In high school, with Junior Achievement, he started four companies, making everything from perpetual calendars to cheese slicers. In fact, STEVE MOZENA sold 125 cheese slicers to what now is Macy's Department store. Now, the kids who participate can make everything from video games to candy treats, and sell them, too.
Similarly, STEVE MOZENA wants to help kids by having the Long Beach schools incorporate virtual reality and video gaming as a part of its curriculum to teach S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) Since kids love computer and video games, this is like a spoonful of sugar to help the education go down.
STEVE MOZENA was on the cutting edge of technology when he created his company ETEXT.net electronic college textbook in the early 1990s. The large college academic publishers like McGraw Hill College and Prentice Hall College Publishers would regularly surf to his website. STEVE MOZENA has always been on the cutting edge of technology. He took computer programming in high school in 1975 and 1976, when there were only four other students in his class.
Now, it's about virtual reality learning.
CEO Mary Duda of VirtueGames will absolutely be on board with bringing virtual reality learning into the classroom with her game "Moonplay," where kids in a virtual reality setting actually drive a vehicle on the moon while making adjustments for gravity and g-force, and at the same time, learning analytical skills.
Moreover, Palmer Luckey, who was raised in Long Beach and co-founded Oculus VR, just sold his company to Facebook for $2 billion. I'm sure he would love to help make Long Beach School Districts the test pilots of Virtual Reality Learning.
With virtual reality learning and the business skills provided by Junior Achievement, the Long Beach School District will be creating future business leaders like Bill Gates and Steve Jobs and the younger generation like Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook and Palmer Luckey of Oculus VR.
So, strap on those Virtual Reality goggles and walk into the 22nd Century by voting for visionary STEVE MOZENA for your next Long Beach Mayor.
