Teaching Tips | Science | Pedagogy |
- This is not a content learning activity, but learning about STEM and energy related job opportunities is very important and relevant for middle and high school students and should be included in any attempt to educate students about climate change and energy awareness.
- This activity would be great to do cross-curriculum 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.
- For updated, nation-wide information on green careers consider using the US Dept of Labor website http://www.dol.gov/dol/green/.
About the Pedagogy

- Activity is investigating green jobs - what kinds of education, training and/or certification are required, personality traits that might be a good match for kind of job, potential salary, etc.
- Activity engages students in matching their personality profile as measured by Meyers Briggs Type Indicator to a variety of green jobs and provides links to programs in Connecticut that offer education, training and certification in those jobs.
- Very practical activity.
