Career Discovery Trek
Career Discovery Trek will be part of SciTech Days for students who choose to participate. Details follow.
- Scavify is a free mobile scavenger hunt app that allows students (ages 13 and older*) to answer questions, take photos, and engage with material and activities.
- Students explore STEM careers in greater detail engaging with SciTech Days exhibits throughout the building by completing tasks that give them direction and also allow for personal reflection.
- Students earn points for each task they complete and can track their progress.
- Teachers can submit an application to receive 3 hours of ACT 48 Credit.
- Lime green tables on each floor will hold instructions and materials for working the Career Discovery Trek including whiteboards and markers to write messages/draw pictures that can then be photographed and included as answers to the trek questions.
- All students have to do is download the free app. After that, they just have to find our scavenger hunt by entering its name “Career Discovery Trek.”
- Encourage students not only to bring their smartphones to SciTech Days but also to download the app in advance.
- Students can share a cell phone and each do their own ‘Trek’.
- Students pick what exhibits to visit to answer their trek questions.
Some sample questions:
- Learn about a career from the Carnegie STEM Girls exhibit. Write down the career and snap a photo. Hint: There are writing stations with green tablecloths on each floor.
- Find and scan the QR code at the FedEx booth.
- Find a college that interests you and take a selfie at the school’s table.
- What is your favorite career/exhibit on the 2nd floor? Take a picture of what you like best about it.
- Find an environmental exhibit and take a photo of someone at the exhibit, somehow indicating what their job is. Hint: There are writing stations with green tablecloths on each floor.
