Teachers TV: Choosing Careers

Students learn about STEM careers by meeting professionals.
Head of careers at Collingwood College, Lorette Parker, has invited eight local business people into the school for a day, to talk about their careers. The visitors have a diverse range of STEM related professions, including research scientists, engineers and project managers. Lorette is hoping they’ll motivate the students to consider STEM professions as a possible career path for themselves. The students get into groups of three and have the opportunity to interview the visitors. As well as getting as much information as they can, the students are expected to meet and greet the visitors, in the same way you would in a real job interview. The experience proves to be real eye-opener for the students and many are surprised about the opportunities available in STEM professions. After the interviews, the students put together a presentation about their interviewees and what they’ve learnt about their various professions.
