Four years of high school is such a short amount of time for high school students to figure out their passions and what they want to pursue in the future. With schoolwork and extracurricular activities, they are barely spending time focusing on their future careers. Limited by the lingering coronavirus pandemic effects and arising new variants, these teens are restricted to websites and virtual informational sessions about college and careers. As a result, they are unable to truly immerse themselves in a field of their interest by volunteering or completing an internship.
Through STEM Careers Outreach: Relative Experiences (SCORE), students can get a taste of various STEM-related careers. Accessible from the comfort of their home, students can watch video interviews of different positions in the biotechnology industry. They will be able to learn more about the individual, such as their college route and career path, and be able to explore the vast opportunities available in the biotechnology industry.
