Watch the activity overview video. This video shows staff facilitating the activity featured in the skill video.

As you watch the skill video below, think about these questions:

  • How do the facilitator’s questions get youth thinking about their own connections to engineering?
  • How do career roles help youth explore their own identity related to science and engineering?
  • How did the facilitator encourage youth to think about the role of engineering in their everyday lives?

Now that you’ve watched the video, reflect on what you saw and post your responses.

  • The facilitators used career roles as a method for building STEM identity. What else could they have done?
  • What is the value of having youth explore different roles in STEM?
