Careers using Science

Succeeding in science helps develop many skills.  These include:

  • Observational Skills (evidence collecting, classifying, measuring)

  • Questioning Skills (developing a question into something that can be tested)

  • Hypothesising (predicting what might happen because of past experience, using models to explain an idea)

  • Predicting (using all relevant evidence to put forward a well structured suggestion)

  • Planning and Investigating (Creating a practical, identifying risks)

  • Interpreting (collecting and explaining data)

  • Communicating (explaining ideas, theories and models in a way others can understand them)

These skills can be used in lots of different careers, sometimes not even directly linked to the science industry.
