Reviews & Awards

“The series will dispel any misconceptions students may have about science jobs being boring.... The interviewees are shown in their work environment, such as an entomologist in the jungles of Madagascar and a mechanical engineer testing robots over rough forest terrain.... Following the interviews, a narrator suggests related jobs in the career field, and graphics and bar graphs show income and years of schooling required. A must have for high school students.”—School Library Journal


“Presents an illuminating look at the work of each scientist portrayed. The content is relevant and presented in an interesting manner.... Will capture and hold students’ attention.... Schools interested in encouraging their students to consider a career in the sciences would benefit from purchasing this series.”—Library Media Connection
