Some of the most exciting careers are in STEM fields. A strong STEM education will allow you to research, test, and build new things. Learn about what role STEM plays in the sports industry. The sports engineers who design uniforms that keep players safe and protected from injury, also allowing them to move faster and improve their statistics, to improving the materials used to make the balls, bats, and other equipment used to play these sports. There are many different STEM careers in sports that are all highlighted, including what degrees it takes to obtain these jobs and what each of these people do. So, if you love sports, you may want to consider a career in one of these fields! This book will allow students to learn that cause and effect relationships are routinely identified, tested, and used to explain change.
Would you like to be a fashion designer using cutting-edge technology to design an upcoming collection? How about a chemist who works in a lab developing the latest face cream or sunscreen? All industries need people with STEM skills to build and develop the next great thing. Learn how STEM can take fashion and beauty careers to the next level by developing eco-friendly materials, creams for special skin conditions, and fast-setting makeup lines. If you love fashion and beauty, this might be the career for you! This book will allow students to understand how small changes in one part of a system might cause large changes in another part.
Some of the most exciting careers are in STEM fields. A strong STEM education will allow you to research, test, and build new things. If you like movies, this book will teach you all about computer animation, industrial light and technical animators, motion capture engineers, and what education and degrees it takes to obtain these exciting careers. Learn all the tricks they use to make the special effects and simulations that make todays movies more exciting! This book will allow students to develop a model to generate data for iterative testing and modification of a proposed object, tool, or process such that an optimal design can be achieved.
The problem-solving skills learned through STEM can take you to the next level in just about any career field. Learn all about the engineers who work with NASCAR, the design behind the GPS system in the cars we drive every day, and the engineers who start with a blueprint and turn it into a design! Improving the sound, safety measures, and ways in which cars can be better for our environment with the introduction of hybrid cars, which use less fuel and decrease the amount of pollutants into the atmosphere. Buckle up and learn all about STEM in cars. This book will allow students to analyze data from tests to determine similarities and differences among several design solutions to identify the best characteristics of each that can be combined into a new solution to better meet the criteria for success.
