21st Century Careers

Our 21st Century Career Skills section focuses on the basic skill set that a student would need to have in order to survive the career world. These skills include things like creativity and innovation, critical thinking and problem-solving, and technology skills.

What you will find here are grade-leveled (K-2, 3-5, Middle, and High School) videos of career professionals in different STEM careers. Each video comes with a companion that pin-points and deciphers each 21st Century Skill that appears throughout each video as well as tips on how to teach your students these skills. Our hope is to provide students access and insight into STEM fields so as to inspire them to pursue these kinds     of careers in their futures.

Students get to virtually meet meteorologists, scientists, statisticians, and other STEM-field professionals. They’ll hear first hand what these professionals went though to get the jobs they have, and skills they’ve needed to stay innovative in ever-changing careers.
