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.
STEM fields are increasingly important today and into the future. People who focus their education on STEM can choose from a wide range of exciting, in-demand careers. This book will introduce students to the importance of the problems our environment faces and the scientists, engineers, and other workers who have made careers trying to correct those problems. Each environmental STEM career is highlighted with the education needed to obtain these jobs and what each of these people do. Maybe one day you will make a difference for our environment by choosing one of these STEM careers! This book will allow students to use evidence to support the explanation that traits can be influenced by the environment.
STEM jobs are careers for the future. When you work in an animal related field, the possibilities for STEM are endless. From the zookeeper who looks after the animals and maintains the daily operations of the zoo, to the veterinarian who gives shots and performs surgery on injured animals, to the engineer who designs better cages or habitats for animals, all these wonderful careers and more are explained in this book. It also details the different degrees it takes to obtain these jobs and what each of these people do. This book will allow students to realize that small changes in one part of a system might cause large changes in another part.
