“I liked the hands-on activities we did where the assignments required us to use materials around our own house to create something to complete the work. I like that type of thing because it’s original and you don’t see those types of homework assignments given out in real school. Also I feel like that type of work can give a student a deeper understanding of the subject.”

“I never heard of a lot of these careers before, so it is cool. I am excited to learn about careers I never even knew existed. Thank you for all these free resources. I will definitely tell my friends to check this out.”

Shannon, 9th Grade Student

“So often students default to careers they are familiar with. CareersInSTEM exposes students to many different careers, and encourages them to think outside the nurse/lawyer/vet box. Plus I love that everything is aligned with the NGSS. It helps me to view the standards from a different lens and make my lessons more relevant for students.”

Don, 7th Grade Science Teacher

“This project has great potential for contributing to the science and engineering workforce, and is innovative and exciting. As a long-term science educator, I have noticed that career exploration is usually the last thing taught in a school year, when everyone, it seems, has run out of steam with the regularly taught science content. Students are left to flounder once they get into college, having no ideas about career options or pathways. The earlier we get the information to school students, the better informed they are to make wise career choices, and pay attention to their studies in mathematics, science, and the technology areas that may affect their future career path. CareerInSTEM can help in all of these aspects.”
