As a student, you may hear about the need to prepare for opportunities in STEM careers. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, so STEM careers are those that require science, technology, engineering, and math knowledge. STEM skills are highly sought by employers and can take you into careers such as video game designers, civil engineers, computer programmers, architects, and more.
You can explore STEM occupations on the California Career Zone and at STEM CAREER. Talk to your school counselor and teachers to find the STEM opportunities at your school.
