    STEMventures 2: Cure Diseases, Build and Fix Machines


     

    [Upbeat music begins…]

    [An image appears showing your character in a mall setting.]

     

    Hey you, are you ready for your STEMventure?  Careers in math and science can take you to some unexpected places, like under water.

     

    Hold your breath.

     

    [The image shows an underwater scene with your character in scuba gear.  A broken down submarine appears.]

    [Sound plays:  glug, glug, glug.]

     

    Who do you call when your submarine breaks down?  A mechanical engineering technician of course!  

     

    [The image adds a mechanical engineering technician.]

    [Sound plays:  ding!]

     

    Mechanical engineering technicians:

     

    They work with engineers to build and fix all kinds of machines:  from artificial hearts, to air conditioners, to submarines.

     

    [The image shows the mechanical engineering technician fixing the submarine.]

    [Sounds play:  sonar pings, gears grinding, clunk, swish, vroom.]

    [The image shows the fixed submarine moving away.]

    And they’re off.

     

    [The image shows a smoke-filled park with your character and many sick people standing around.]
    [Sounds play:  cough cough, sneeze sneeze.]

     

    Uh oh, this doesn’t look good.  When so many people get sick, epidemiologists want to know why.

     

    [The image adds an epidemiologist.]

    [Sound plays:  ding!]

     

    Epidemiologists:

     

    They’re disease detectives; they use science, math and statistics to figure out why a group people get sick and how to make people healthier.

     

    [Sound plays:  typing sounds – click click click click click click.]

     

    And while the epidemiologist figures out what’s going on, physician assistants can take care of the patients.

     

    [The image adds a physician assistant.]

    [Sound plays:  ding!]

     

    Physician assistants:

     

    They do pretty much everything doctors do and work everywhere, especially where a regular doctor might not be available.

     

    [The image shows the physician assistant giving medication to the sick people.]
    [Sound plays:  pop.]

     

    Ah ha!

     

    [The image shows the epidemiologist pointing out a polluting smoke stack in the distance.  The mechanical engineering technician appears and turns off the smoke stack, clearing the air.]

    [Sound plays:  clunk.]

     

    Everyone better?  Excellent.

     

    [The image shows your character at an automotive repair facility.  A wrecked car appears.]

    [Sound plays:  poof.]

     

    That car is in rough shape.  But to an automotive master mechanic that’s nothing.

     

    [The image adds an automotive master mechanic.]

    [Sound plays:  ding!]

     

    Automotive master mechanics:

     

    They know how every part of a vehicle works and can install any kind of complicated part you can think of.

     

    [The image shows the automotive master mechanic fixing the car.]

    [Sounds play:  clicking, drilling, snap, woosh.]

    [The image shows the fixed car in perfect shape.]

    See?  Nice job.

     

    [The image shows your character driven in the car back to the mall setting.]

     

    Build and fix machines.

     

    [The image adds the mechanical engineering technician.]

     

    Help sick people.

     

    [The image adds the physician assistant.]

     

    Fix all kinds of vehicles.

     

    [The image adds the automotive master mechanic.]

     

    Solve disease mysteries.

     

    [The image adds the epidemiologist.]

     

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

     

     [The image shows money raining down from above.]
    [Sound plays:  sound of money clinking.]
