Explore Careers in Science on Science Buddies

A few years ago I wrote about using Science Buddies to find ideas for science fair projects and science lesson plans. This morning I revisited Science Buddies and found that there is now a section about careers in science. The Science Careers section offers overviews of dozens of careers in seven different areas of science. Each career profile provides an overview of what a person in that field does, links to interviews with people in that field, the minimum education requirements of the career, career growth potential, and salary information.

Applications for Education
The Science Buddies Science Careers page could be a good reference for guidance counselors to bookmark. Students who enjoy science, but aren't sure of the career opportunities in science, could benefit from researching some careers through the Science Buddies Science Careers page.
