Help students imagine their future careers!

The middle grades (5 – 7) are prime time for exploring careers. They are also an age-appropriate time for cultivating problem-solving skills. The Career Ideas Challenge lets students do both — explore careers within the context of solving real world problems. Each activity includes a brief career profile plus two challenges:

  • an online research chase to find out  facts about the featured career
  • a story-based problem-solving sceneario that gives students a sense of the people, products, and processes associated with the featured career
