The Quest is to inspire all students by allowing them to see someone they identify with, being successful in a STEM field.

Student handouts highlighting different careers in STEM. NOTE: We are making more of these and will post them soon.
Calling STEM Professionals!
The world of STEM is vast and exciting, but many students are unaware of the opportunities it offers. Educators strive to integrate practical college and career readiness skills into their teaching. To bridge this gap, Purdue University College of Science K-12 Outreach is in the process of building an extensive STEM Career Repository.
Your Expertise Counts
We're inviting you to contribute your expertise by creating a short 2-3 minute video. This video will introduce students and teachers to the captivating work you do as a STEM professional. Your insights can illuminate potential career paths, fostering curiosity and enthusiasm among young minds.
Q: Does it need to be recorded professionally?
A: Nope! You can just use your phone. It’s not a Hollywood character, it’s real people. Or we can record it for you either on Zoom or in person if you are going to be around West Lafayette, Indiana.
Q: Will you be editing it or do I need a finished product?
A: We have student editors that will edit the video clips submitted.
Q: What format will you need it in?
A: Preferred horizontally filmed and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org as a mp4. But we can deal with whatever you can get us.
Q: Can we send you a link to a video on our YouTube page?
A: No. Due to politics, restrictions, and past issues, we can only link to videos on the Superheroes of Science YouTube channel.
Q: What is the timeline for submitting my video?
A: Anytime. We have the repository started and will be adding to it regularly.
