Product Description
This lesson was designed for 8th grade students at the end of the school year. Students research various Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics jobs and select one to further research for a career fair for parents and other students.

Students start by selecting 3 careers they might be interested in and research the basics of the career (using the 3 careers initial sheet). After looking at 3, students narrow it down to their final career and do more extensive research. After researching and learning all about their career, students put together a presentation board for a career fair. Students are expected to be knowledgable about their career and able to answer any questions asked by teachers, other students, or parents.

There is also an extension where students have to create a poster and brochure to advertise the career, as well as a budget project to help students get a better grasp of money in real life.
