Career Exploration Tours and Field Trips Triptych

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.
