Investigating Careers / Career Exploration - 7th Grade
This course allows students to explore career options and begin investigating career opportunities. Students assess their roles in society, identify their roles as workers, and complete an exploration of the 16 career clusters, which includes Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). Students immerse themselves in each career cluster as they thoroughly explore careers in investigating careers. Students create research-based presentations, keep and maintain an engineering notebook as they create a product under the career cluster. Students are able to select career pathways or occupations for further study in high school and beyond. This course also helps students identify and demonstrate the workplace skills that employers desire in their future employees. Unit examples include 3D printing, programming/coding, bridge build, Lego robotics, Drones, and more.
