This Teachers TV video illustrates a range of techniques to help students think about careers in STEM professions. Using a context of in-vitro fertilisation (IVF), the school nurse talks to a Year Eight class about her work before students consider the various professionals involved in IVF. The students perform a role play which makes them think about the number of professions involved in IVF and raises some interesting questions. The second part of the lesson challenges students to focus on one particular profession by searching various STEM careers websites, with the students creating a poster display of their findings.
