It is important that young people think science is for them, even if they do not want to follow a "science" career.
The study of science is not just for the gifted and more able students who want a scientific career, but it is relevant to everyone for their future decision making and information processing. This short careers video and the set of posters are a tool that teachers can use to help demonstrate this to students. The careers video highlights that science allows students to gain a broad range of transferable skills useful in many careers. Science is a way of thinking, a way of analysing facts and acting upon this analysis; science isn’t about knowing the answers, it’s about knowing what questions to ask.
The why science is for me video and poster is designed to be used by those teaching students aged 11 – 16.
