“Almost all careers in the 21st century require a working knowledge of science and mathematics,” says Steve Metz, The Science Teacher field editor, in his introduction to All in a Day’s Work, 2nd edition. “The pending retirement of 78 millions baby boomers can only add to the need for science and mathematics training, as companies begin recruiting replacement workers in science fields, sometimes—believe it or not—as early as middle school!”

This expanded second edition will help you give students an exciting look at the vast array of jobs built on a foundation of science, including:

• the expected—high school science teacher, microbiologist, and radiation therapist,
• the unexpected—bomb investigator, space architect, and musical acoustics scientist, the adventurous—astronaut, deep-cave explorer, and dinosaur paleontologist, and
• the offbeat— shark advocate, roller coaster designer, and oyster wrangler

All in a Day’s Work, 2nd edition is a compendium of 49 of the popular “Career of the Month” columns from the NSTA high school journal The Science Teacher. Each column profiles a person in a science-related job and can be reproduced and shared with your high school students as they make career and education plans. Each profile includes suggestions about how to find additional career information, including links to websites and relevant professional organizations and interest groups.
