16 CTE’s Role in STEM STEM intensive careers are being taught in CTE areas. Rigor and relevant Mentoring Career and Technical Student organizations Work based learning opportunities Job shadowing internships

17 What’s Your Role as a Educator? Help students understanding what are STEM careers and what people in those careers do Teacher advisement Support Project Lead the Way (PLTW) Support CTE training programs for all students Promote Nontraditional involvement Implement Career Clusters

18 Career Clusters An approach that gives students a broader understanding of the world of careers. Connects what is learned in school to what is needed for success in college and careers.
