Careers in science

We’re keen to help you encourage your students to understand where their science lessons could take them, and how the skills and knowledge they learn in class relate to the work of scientists today, in all kinds of jobs.

This collection of six teaching resources to help put science into a modern context of careers, including two resources for each of the age groups 11-14, 14-16 and post-16.

Each of the six resources brings together a careers case study with a contemporary scientist working in a different field, followed by a practical investigation and an opportunity for your pupils to do some research of their own. The resources include student sheets and full technical and teaching notes.
