Teaching Tips

This is not a content learning activity, but learning about STEM and energy-related job opportunities is relevant for middle and high school students. This activity can pair well with content about climate change and energy awareness.

This activity invites collaborative teaching, such as between a science educator and a psychology educator, a business/career educator, or a technology educator.

Interpretation of the results of the Myers Briggs Type Inventory could be sensitive for some students. Educators may want to work with a career counselor to address questions and/or concerns.
