- Education Professionals
Science teacher Nichola Offer uses a range of techniques to help her students think about careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) professions.
Nichola focuses on IVF and invites the school nurse, Rachael Bines, into the lesson to talk to her Year 8 class at the Thomas Deacon Academy, Peterborough, about her work and to provide professional support.
The students perform a role play which gets them thinking about the number of professions involved in IVF and raises some interesting questions.
The second part of the lesson challenges students to focus on one particular profession by searching various STEM careers websites, with the students creating a poster display of their findings.
This programme is part of a series looking at the careers available in STEM professions.
