Assessing Children’s Career Aspirations

by: Donna M. Plummer

In the past several years, Science and Children has invited preservice and inservice teachers to participate in national studies of students’ ideas about scientists (Barman 1997), animals (Barman et al. 2000), and plants (Barman et al. 2003). You are invited to participate in an additional study that will examine children’s career aspirations. Your participation in this survey will provide you with an understanding of how your students perceive potential careers.
