Cool Science Careers Student Worksheets

Rice University provides several scavenger hunt-style activity pages students can use when playing the game Cool Science Careers: Imagine Yourself.

You can have students look over the questions prior to game play to familiarize themselves with the learning outcomes, and then answer the questions as they complete each section of the game. Another idea is to have students complete the worksheet after game play in order to reflect on their learning. The worksheet serves as a great assessment tool.

Neuropsychology worksheet (answer key)

Toxicology worksheet (answer key)

Neurobiology worksheet (answer key)

Epidemiology Worksheet (answer key)

Note that each worksheet concludes with two open-ended questions: What part of this career appeals to you? What part of this career do you not like? These are helpful questions for students to think about at the end of game play and perhaps discuss with other students as they think consider their career choices.
