Hello everyone! I'm a college student interested in starting a nonprofit organization centered around supplementing classroom STEM education. After working with a few schools and teachers in my area (Northern NJ), I've been told that students could benefit from more learning opportunities dedicated to exploring interdisciplinary and non-traditional career pathways.

I've had some success in giving short presentations on these topics, but I'm still trying to figure out what other needs and solutions exist in STEM for high school and middle school students.

One solution I have considered is making a "kit" paired with a presentation to give students the opportunity to work firsthand on a career skill and to receive guidance as they do it. For example, students interested in forensics could go through a presentation on forensic technologies and have the chance to "apply" some of them through a guided forensic case. Do you think this is something that could work?
