As a teacher, I found this curriculum to finally be the answer to the dreaded ‘Why do I need to know this?’. My solution to the engagement problem was real world relevance – the same content delivered through the lens of fun STEM careers. It worked for me, and I know it will work for you too!
Here’s what one of our customers said:
“So often students default to careers they are familiar with. Career In STEM 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 teacher
