4. Standards Alignment Charts

As a middle and high school science teacher, my students had no idea what they wanted to be, and I couldn’t find a fun and easy way to help them learn about STEM careers – so the Explorer was born! The Explorer system includes a standards alignment chart for parents and educators to make every lesson a STEM career lesson, and effortlessly find a career that connects to what you are ALREADY teaching.

  1. Open the standards alignment chart.

  2. Find the standard you are working on (NGSS, TEKS, and Career Clusters).

  3. Click on link for a career page that directly connects to that standard.

  4. Done!

These standards alignment charts empower educators and parents to effortlessly integrate STEM career exploration into every lesson, every day. Also ideal for CTE pathway exploration, curriculum compacting, and enrichment.
