Description Technical Specs Extended Information
It’s about the Future

The STEAM Real-World Career Video Library is specifically designed to help teachers answer the age-old question from students, “Why do I need to learn this?”

We take your students behind the scenes—on location—at worksites all over the country, where professionals are using math and science skills in a wide variety of exciting careers.

Delivered to you on a single flash drive, this resource includes 65 Futures Channel Movies. These “microdocumentaries” are high quality presentations with original music. Each movie can be used to introduce or demonstrate a particular lesson or concept—or just to stimulate discussion and inquiry by putting a curriculum topic into a real-world context.

The library also includes comprehensive teaching guides for every movie. These guides provide more than 600 real-world lesson activities, problems and hands-on student projects related to the movies. The easy-to-use library interface allows you to search for content by title, curriculum topic or standard.

Engage your students
Real-world connections are just the start. This resource will truly engage your students. The inspiring men and women in these movies represent a diverse selection of fascinating jobs. Yet most students don’t even know these careers exist—much less consider them as options for their own futures.

As unique as these professionals are, one common attribute prevails: They love their jobs. Our aim is that their enthusiasm resonates with students, and the question “Why do I need to
learn this?” becomes, “If I learned this, I could have that job.”

Today’s students will become tomorrow’s professionals. And no one is more committed to actually making that happen than the teacher, one of our most important professionals of all.

This unique resource is dedicated to teachers. We hope you find it useful in helping your students to imagine their own futures—and to acquire the skills to make
those futures a reality.

What educators are saying:
“The materials are informative and inspirational as experts, who obviously love their work, explain their application of math, science, and art. These materials can be used for introducing lessons, enhancing them, or motivating students to research beyond the confines of their text. The teachers resources are impressive. Addressing concepts at several maturity levels, the questions are appropriate for both middle school and high school, and they are correlated to NCTM standards. I am excited about having this resource available at my school. The math and science teachers are already competing for its use as we plan for courses.”
—Mathematics Teacher, National Council of Teachers of Mathematics

“I am just stunned. What a wonderful resource you have provided to me. I feel like a kid in a candy store. I don’t know what to do first. The videos are outstanding and are wonderfully produced. The file resources are incredibly done. I honestly wish today was not Friday and I could start with them tomorrow! I will use the one on Mars in a couple of weeks as we prepare for a field trip to the Space Center here. Thank you so much for sharing. They are wonderfully produced and VERY EASY to use.”
—Brinkley B. Pound, Lead teacher and science department head
