2. STEM Careers
Connecting your classroom to careers is a great way to broaden students’ understanding of the world beyond school while boosting engagement and creating intrinsic motivation for learning. Start by decorating your classroom with free printable STEM Type posters, then have your students take the free STEM Type Quiz. The quiz will only take about 10 minutes for your students to complete, yet they will gain incredible insight about the careers they might enjoy based on the skills they already like to use. You can even use our free printable STEM Type stickers to let your students show off and compare their results.
Embracing this classroom theme will show students that you are interested in the things that make them unique. Students will also get to see that you care about more than just their performance in your classroom, but their development and success as a person beyond the walls of the school.
