This Monday, WXXI will be launching its new YouTube series that gives kids a sneak peek into STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) careers. Geared towards students 7-11 years old, I Can Be What?! provides an entryway into career exploration that will stimulate conversation, inspire further research, and ultimately instill confidence in pursuing academic, technical, trade, and artistic endeavors. In each episode host Jennifer Indovina, a science communicator, inventor, and electrical engineer visits professionals on their own turf and embeds herself in their workdays.
Go to http://icanbewhat.org to watch it, where you can also subscribe to the series. A new episode will be available each day at 10:00 am for the next two weeks.
The Series Educational Resource website, WXXI.org/icanbewhat, provides online content and resources to help parents/caregivers and educators further their student’s exploration process. Families can also follow the series and stay connected on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram at @icanbewhatkids.
I Can Be What?! is supported by the Waldron Rise Foundation and the Lilliputian Foundation.
