Summary:
Today, we began our end-of-year capstone project: Applying for Jobs. Students will have to choose between seven different science jobs: a Space-X engineer, a NASA chemist, a vaccine developer, a biologist, an astronaut, a FEMA staffer, and an environmental scientist. Of course, each job goes along with one of our seven units of study this year.

Over the course of the week, students will be writing resumes and cover letters and applying for one of the jobs above. On Thursday, their resumes will be sent to real science professionals in each of the seven fields. The experts will then choose one winner for each position. Winners will be announced on Friday, and prizes will be awarded!
