Posted on 1/8/17 by susan parsons Last updated on 6/8/17


STEAM Career Website

This project is to encourage students to learn more about the many careers that include science, technology, engineering, art, and math. By allowing students to see many current careers and letting them hone in one a few that peaks their interest, students will not only learn about the career, but gain direction on what schooling, salary, work environment, etc. each of the careers include.


STEAM Website by Wall High School Students

Students will first use the internet to search for STEAM careers. Once they have a list, they can then use the Ferguson's database to research each of the careers. Students will select five STEAM careers. They will research an overview of each of these careers. Based upon their findings which they have posted in a Google Doc, they will select their most favorite from the five. They will then conduct more detailed research of this favorite STEAM career; again adding their findings to their Google Doc. Once they have obtained more detailed information on the career such as schooling, workplace environment, description of a day in that career, job description, hiring potential, and potential salaries, students will then be videoed while describing their chosen career. Videos will be shared via the STEAM website.

Although career research is a somewhat common high school project, adding the video component and publishing website that students contribute encourages more participation and creativity.​
