Career Exploration Tours
Career exploration tours are designed to help students get a concrete view of what it’s like to work at Seattle Children’s Research Institute and show them the paths that lead to careers in STEM and healthcare.
Career exploration tours include a behind-the-scenes tour of the research institute and a trip to our Discovery Portal visitor center. Other highlights include a presentation on STEM careers, and a panel discussion with researchers and other STEM professionals who work at Seattle Children’s Research Institute.
Field trips allow students to do hands-on experiments led by our scientists and educators in our labs at Seattle Children’s Research Institute.
