Curious Careers is a STEM career exploration series for youth Grades 6 to 8. Once a month, post-secondary students as well as industry and academic professionals will get together virtually to share their career journey in STEM and discuss how it relates to the lives and interests of the youth. Each interactive session will focus on a different theme and will explore exciting and diverse STEM fields, share what it looks like to work or study in STEM, and discuss what future STEM careers might look like. The series will also include optional follow-up activities which encourage students to reflect on their skills and interests, and start contemplating their futures.
