11/01/2014Gr 8 Up—The increasing need for young professionals in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) fields means that strong academic foundations in high school are important. Just as vital is education on what these jobs entail. This useful, though less than thrilling series addresses this need by detailing the varied paths available and the significant impact of these professions. For example, a hydrologist plays an important role in ensuring the preservation of and access to our most precious resource—water. Well-organized material combined with informative advice make these titles helpful additions to high school libraries. However, the texts are quite dry, so readers should be encouraged to dip in and out, depending on their interests.
