School Library Connection - Sara Rofofsky Marcus, Adjunct Professor, UMUC, Bayside, NY

"For students who are not interested in a subject, seeing these career options will encourage them to study the subject. Colorful photos of workers and definitions on each two-page spread entice the reader and encourage vocabulary growth." - School Library Connection

School Library Journal - Jess deCourcy Hinds, Bard H.S. Early College Queens

"This collection illustrates the diversity of jobs while shattering stereotypes about careers in math, science, and technology. The stylish, graffiti-style design and fun fonts imbue each page with a youthful feeling. . . .Put this series on display—it won’t stay there long." - School Library Journal

NSTA Recommends - Lois Spangler, Second Grade Science Teacher

"Do your students sometimes have difficulty connecting technology with ideas of viable future jobs? The transferability of classroom science and technology lessons to real world situations is one of our primary goals. Another goal is to help students make direct linkages between science and technology to potential future occupations. If you are looking for a book to help your students make those connections consider Unusual and Awesome Jobs Using Technology. . . .This book would be valuable for K–8 differentiated instruction, student research projects, and building reading skills such as locating information and more. I recommend this volume for both boys and girls. However, I would also suggest that you consider this book for boys who are reluctant readers with a grade 3–4 reading level or reluctant science students. A potentially very useful book, which can be used to introduce students to a variety of technology jobs and help students make valuable connections." - NSTA Recommends
