From the Centre for Science Education

These resources suggest a range of activities that can be used to illustrate different aspects of STEM professions.

They were developed by the Centre for Science Education at Sheffield Hallam University and Babcock for the former Department for Children, Schools and Families as part of the initiative to promote subject choice and careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM).

Activities include:

* Carbon Footprints - data handling and sustainability
* Packaging Design - teamwork and design skills
* Taking a Risk - calculating probability as an actuary
* Working Internationally - the importance of time-zones when working in a multinational company
* Top Trumps - reflecting on skills of individuals in various careers


Top Trumps

This resource from the Department for Education is a set of 'Top Trumps' cards, which help students reflect on the skills and personality traits of individuals in particular careers. The cards could be used as a starter activity before students reflect on their own attributes and interests.
