Future Morph: career related resources for science and maths

These Science Council resources provide careers-related contexts to support teaching of the science and mathematics subject curricula. The materials help students understand the relevance of science and mathematics to a wide range of career routes, many of which they do not necessarily associate with these subjects. The resources include short video profiles of people who use science and maths in their job. Each video is linked to a practical activity suggested in the Resources Booklet and described in detail in the teachers' notes accompanying every video.
