Your role as an instructor is to foster a lifelong love of science and the confidence to progress into a career where your students can use their skills and knowledge. Hopefully, your classes will awaken a lifelong interest in science!
Labster enables students to explore career options such as a marine biologist, astronomer, and archeologist. We’ve identified 8 career paths students using Labster can take based on their learnings and the aligned virtual labs. All of the fields outlined are growing (some rapidly) or will have openings over the next decade.
Forensic science technicians aid criminal investigations by collecting and analyzing evidence. Crime solving isn’t just for TV shows. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of forensic science technicians is projected to grow 11 percent from 2021 to 2031, much faster than the average for all occupations.
Does life in the ocean excite you? A marine biologist is a scientist who specializes in studying marine wildlife. According to US BLS, about 1,500 openings for wildlife biologists are projected each year, on average, over the decade.
If you’re keen on saving the environment, this might be the job for you. Environmental scientists and specialists use their knowledge of the natural sciences to protect the environment and human health. According to US BLS, employment of environmental scientists and specialists is projected to grow 5 percent from 2021 to 2031.
An archeologist is a scientist who studies past peoples and cultures by excavating and examining material remains. According to US BLS, employment of anthropologists and archeologists is projected to grow 6 percent from 2021 to 2031. We have an instructor using Labster to teach archaeogenetics to Archaeology students.
Agricultural and food scientists research ways to improve the efficiency and safety of agricultural establishments and products. According to the US BLS, overall employment of agricultural and food scientists is projected to grow 8 percent from 2021 to 2031, faster than the average for all occupations.
Epidemiologists are public health workers who investigate patterns and causes of disease and injury. The field is growing rapidly. According to the US BLS, employment of epidemiologists is projected to grow 26 percent from 2021 to 2031, much faster than the average for all occupations.
Imagine your job being studying planets, jobs, and other celestial bodies? It’s not just a dream in a galaxy far away! According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, overall employment of physicists and astronomers is projected to grow 8 percent from 2021 to 2031, faster than the average for all occupations.
Exercise physiologists develop fitness and exercise programs that help injured or sick patients recover. According to the US BLS, employment of exercise physiologists is projected to grow 9 percent from 2021 to 2031, faster than the average for all occupations.
Virtual Labs are interactive science simulations that accelerate STEM learning through gamification. Educators assign labs to students through their internet browsers, where students can train lab skills, visualize abstract theory, and learn science through real-world scenarios.Try for Free
