STEM Career Videos

All of these career videos were developed specifically for STEM careers in Pennsylvania. The first healthcare careers video was developed in Delaware County.


These videos can be a great introduction to various STEM-related careers that may interest students. They can be viewed together as a class or you can have students review them individually based on their interests.


Some potential questions for discussion include:

  • What jobs seem interesting and why?
  • How do these jobs relate to my interests? How do they relate to my talents and what I think I do well?
  • What do I like about the work environments I saw in the videos? What don't I like about them?
  • What kinds of educational preparation and background do I need to get a job in this field?
  • Now that I've seen these videos, what else do I want to know about these careers?
