CanTEEN Career Exploration is an innovative resource to inspire girls to envision themselves in STEM careers through gaming and online activities.
CanTEEN Interactive: CanTEEN Trivia Wheel CD puts a spin on the classic gaming style of multiple choice trivia questions. This Trivia Wheel contains 11 categories, including Human Body, Modern Technology, Spending, and What Matters?
Challenges: Activities span diverse STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) topics, related careers and connections to professional women making a difference in the world. The challenges will cover a variety of subjects from kitchen experiments to field research and digital learning training to hands-on construction.
Explore Your Future: This section introduces tweens and teens, ages 9 – 17, to a vast array of STEM careers and female professionals in these fields through the resources and opportunities.
Livin’ It: We want girls to recognize that STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) topics and careers are pretty cool. Maybe even cool enough to be part of their future plans. To help them envision these possibilities, this section provides profiles of women who are involved in these fields, and answers some basic questions girls may have such as, ”What’s a typical day like?” or “How do I start preparing now?” We give your students an inside look at each woman’s job, her dreams, and her most significant learning experiences throughout her journey.
Careers A-Z: Despite comprising half of the overall work force, women hold only 25% of science and engineering jobs in America’s public and private sectors. We need to change that. There are so many careers girls and women can pursue in science, technology, engineering, and math! From accountant to zoologist and more, encourage your students to search these categories to explore the exciting, and lucrative, possibilities!
Tour Your Future: Tour Your Future is a career exploration program that gives tweens and teens, ages 11-17, an opportunity to meet female professionals who work in various organizations. The program shows girls that they can find a place in science by introducing them to diverse STEM careers, from avian zoologists to accountants, software engineers to surgeons at their work sites.
