I hope this post finds you well, and that you are gearing up for an exciting summer! Did you know that this upcoming summer is the perfect time for STEM career exploration?! It’s true! In the summer months students have more time to explore, discover, and get involved in career exploration initiatives over summer break. Thus I urge you to leverage this critical time to help your students build a future they love 😊 If you are looking for EFFORTLESS ways to do so, here’s how I can help!
Summer STEM Career Exploration Made EASY!

Quick Start STEM Career Exploration Kit: If you don’t have this already, download free at careerinstem.com/free. This Kit has lots of free STEM career exploration resources to help you get started such as a ‘why STEM careers’ presentation, a career exploration graphic organizer, program assessment tool, and lots more. These are fast, easy, click and go resources that would be a great fit for intro type activities for any summer program.
Each monthly newsletter I send out (second Tuesday of each month) includes link to a free STEM career exploration poster for the month. June will go out on the 7th. This poster will feature ‘summer’ related careers. When you click on the title of each career within the poster it goes to the matching online career profile in my Explorer system with virtual job shadow YouTube video, career info sheet (in English & Spanish), and hands-on ‘try it’ activity. I also announce exclusive free offers in the monthly newsletter, such as an upcoming FREE How to Become a STEM Major workshop on May 24 at 6:30pm eastern. Be sure to open these emails – there’s tons of good stuff in there!
As an idea you could do the ‘why STEM careers’ presentation from the free Kit, then have students explore the careers from the June poster from the newsletter, then have them use the graphic organizer from the Kit to keep track of careers they are interested in. All of this would be free, and all would work whether in person or virtual!
STEM Career Exploration Games Bundle – $21.78 As a teacher I always found games to be the best way to get students excited about STEM and begin exploring related careers. This bundle includes a good variety and lots of fun – STEM career taboo, surrounded by STEM game, STEM career Jenga, and much more! See this & more at careerinstem.com/catalog, games tab
STEM Career Exploration Starter Kit – $24.99 This would be the perfect way to launch your summer program as it includes an intro to STEM career exploration lesson, as well as access to 60 STEM career profiles each with interactive online career exploration activities including virtual job shadow YouTube video, career information sheet in English and Spanish, and fun career focused activity to test-drive the career. Your students would have lifetime access to these 60 career profiles to KEEP exploring during your program and long after! See this & more at careerinstem.com/catalog, curricula & bundles tab
Live Intro to STEM Careers workshop – $49 if booked before 6/29 In this live Zoom workshop, facilitated by my manager Lucia, students will learn what STEM is (and is not!), get a sense of the tremendous career opportunities in STEM, and learn how to use the best free resources to take the first steps to a future STEM career. This would be a done-for-you intro activity to help launch your summer program! Details at careerinstem.com/careerexploration – you must mention this letter to get the discounted rate
