In class this month students learned about different careers in science. The students were asked to pick one career in science they would be interested in. They created a writing assignment that asked them why they were interested in that career, what type of things they do in that line of work, what is the most challenging part of the career, and what they think they would like most about that particular career. This week the students presented their work and below are some finished products.
