    STEMventures 1: Discover, Invent, Protect Wildlife


     

    [Upbeat music begins…]

    [An image appears showing your character with others outside a school.]

     

    Hello and welcome to your STEMventure.  Careers in math and science can take you places, like outer space.  

    [An image of a TV drops into the view showing an outer space picture.]

    [Sound plays:  woosh.]

     

    Do you want to know what’s out there?  Aerospace engineers do.  

    [The image adds two aerospace engineers and a robot.]

    [Sound plays:  ding!]

     

    Aerospace engineers:

     

    Aerospace engineers are really in to everything that flies and goes in to space.  They build robots like this one.  And explore other planets.

    [The image shows street lights outside the school turning on.]

    [Sounds play:  blast, blast, blast.]

    [The image shows the robot and your character flying through space and landing on another planet.  The robot moves along and collects samples.]

    [Sounds play:  clank, clank, clank, woosh, woosh, woosh.]

     

    Ooh, discoveries!

     

    [An image of a swamp appears with your character.  A frog jumps by.]
    [Sounds play:  croak, buzzing.]

     

    Ah, mosquitoes!

     

    [The image shows a mosquito swarm with a close up of a very large mosquito.]

    [Sound plays:  evil laughter.]

     

    Clothes that repel insects, duct tape, candy:  chemical engineers make a lot of cool stuff.

    [The image adds a chemical engineer performing experiments.]

    [Sound plays:  ding!]

     

    Chemical engineers:

     

    [Sound plays:  bubbling.]

    [The image shows mosquito swarm is gone and your character is now wearing insect-repellent clothing.]

     

    Ah, that’s better.

     

    [The image shows a kayaker paddling by.]

     

    Hello!

     

    [The image shows a large eagle which swoops in and grabs your character.]

     

    Whoa!  Hold on!

     

    [The image shows the eagle flying through the mountains and dropping your character in a tree near a bird’s nest.  Baby birds appear in the nest.]

    [Sound plays:  birds chirping.]

     

    Hey look!  It’s a wildlife biologist in his natural habitat, outdoors.

     

    [The image adds a wildlife biologist.]

    [Sound plays:  ding!]

     

    Wildlife biologists:

     

    Wildlife biologists study animals and protect endangered species.  He’s putting tags on these birds’ legs so he can measure their growth over time.

     

    [The image shows tagged birds flying away and full grown hawks appear.  A tagged hawk is weighed and measured by the wildlife biologist.]

    [Sound plays:  boing.]

     

    Looking good!  See you next time.

     

    [The image shows the hawk flying away and your character returning to the school.]

     

    Make discoveries.

     

    [An image of the earth appears with the aerospace engineers.]

     

    Invent new things.

     

    [The image adds the robot and the chemical engineer.]

     

    Protect animals.

     

    [The image adds the wildlife biologist, frog, birds and an eagle.]

     

    You can do any of this, and you can make a lot of money too.

     

    [The image adds multiple money bags.]

    [Sound plays:  thud.]
