Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM)

Are you detail-oriented? Do you want to know how things work, or enjoy solving problems?

Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics workers do scientific research in laboratories or the field. Others plan or design products and systems. Or, you might support scientists, mathematicians, or engineers as they do their work.

For example, you might oversee the construction of roads, develop systems to prevent diseases, or help engineers do research and read blueprints.
