Tips for Making Connections to STEM Careers
  • Introduce options youth have as part of a future STEM workforce in creative ways.
  • Find STEM role models to engage with youth. Have them engage in a STEM activity with youth and align the skills learned in that activity to their career, rather than stand and share about their job.
  • Encourage youth to discuss how the activity is relevant to their lives. This helps youth see themselves in STEM careers.
  • Assist youth with researching pathways to careers - What educational level, high school courses, clubs, or internships could help youth achieve their STEM career goals?
