    Educator's Guide & Student Career List


    Are you looking for easy ways to integrate STEM and make your NGSS lessons more relevant and engaging? With this introductory STEM curriculum, turn every lesson into a STEM lesson, and effortlessly make career connections!

    Featuring over 300 pages worth of engaging investigations and inquiry-based activities, this career-infused middle school STEM curriculum will expose your students to STEM careers, engage them in the practices and skills required in such professions, and connect seamlessly into your existing curriculum. All lessons and corresponding careers are aligned with middle school Disciplinary Core Ideas (DCIs) of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). The majority of these lessons are designed for in-person learning, but some are appropriate for distance learning, marked as (distance learning) in the product titles. Please see previews by clicking the green 'preview included resources' button above.

    Purchase includes:

    1. 30 no-prep lesson plans in 5E format, all with associated student worksheets, answer keys, online career exploration activities, and more!

    2. Educator's guide with linked lessons in alphabetical order, NGSS standard, and NGSS DCIs is included as a bonus file to aid in planning and curriculum integration. (PDF)

    3. Career List for Students with links to all the online career exploration resources covered in this curriculum (each with virtual job shadow video, downloadable career information sheet in English and Spanish, and fun career focused activity) (PDF - page 3 in the Bonus File)

    All activities in this curriculum are designed to be used with limited and basic materials - ex: scissors, paper, tin foil, rubber bands, empty milk jug, cups, etc. None of the lessons require use of 'special' materials.

    As a teacher, I found this curriculum to finally be the answer to the dreaded 'Why do I need to know this?' My solution to the engagement problem was real world relevance - the same content delivered through the lens of fun STEM careers. Nearly 300 pages - it worked for me, and I know it will work for you too!

    Here's what one of our customers said:

    "So often students default to careers they are familiar with. Career In STEM exposes students to many different careers and encourages them to think outside the nurse/lawyer/vet box. Plus I love that everything is aligned with the NGSS. It helps me to view the standards from a different lens and make my lessons more relevant for students." - Don, 7th-grade teacher
