ITEST Webinar: STEM Career Exploration for Middle School
Presenter: Sarita Pillai, ITEST Learning Resource Center at EDC
Summary: This webinar provides a guided tour about two youth-created STEM career resources developed by Education Development Center, Inc, and funded by the National Science Foundation. The Girls Communicating Career Connections project's media series’ short video segments produced by middle school aged girls captures the inquiry-based learning experiences of six girls, as they investigate what it means to be a scientist or engineer. The FunWorks provides highly interactive, 'real world' career experiences and uses young people's current interests and passions (e.g., music, sports) to help them explore exciting, future STEM careers.
