A fabulous introduction to STEM careers! Taking a learn-and-then-do approach, each book balances career instruction with activities/tasks while also introducing sub-specialties in each career. Students will learn what the career demands in tasks and personal skills and will be given opportunities to complete activities in and outside the book. Place the provided stickers on pages when you've completed tasks and get a "certification" when you've learned about each subcategory (the Scientist Academy, for example, covers lab, investigative, earth, and life science careers, etc.). Then, as part of "graduating" from the book, students take a career oath to follow as they pursue this career. Each book comes with stickers, a poster, a press-out model, and a game to put together. A superb tool to begin career exploration. ~ Ruth
