Today, more than 70% of Canada’s leading jobs require or benefit from a background in STEM (science, technology, engineering & math). And the number only goes up with each passing year.
Does that sound like a lot? Well, the range of careers open to people with STEM backgrounds is wider than you might think. And STEM careers aren’t limited to people who wear lab coats with pocket protectors (not that there’s anything wrong with that)! They also include a variety of opportunities in the skilled trades and technology. There are also many careers in the fields like business, law, sales and the arts that benefit from a solid STEM background.
Your students can learn more by attending our online STEM career panels! We will be holding a series of three online events in both English and French. Panellists from across Canada will talk about their interesting STEM-based careers and answer your students’ questions. If your class can’t participate in the live events, videos will be posted on CurioCity afterwards.
