Over One-Third of Stark County's 8th Graders Look Towards a Science and Technology Career

Over one-third of Stark County's 8th graders are thinking about careers related to science and technology. This includes engineering, natural sciences, and the medical profession. Significantly, the majority are females.

When 3,639 students across all 17 Stark County school districts took the EXPLORE Test this fall, they were asked to indicate their career preferences. Nearly 3,500 students responded. While from an 8th grade perspective, the test's Career Interest List provides valuable early information for educators and guidance counselors to help guide career exploration as students enter their high school years.

EXPLORE Career Preferences


EXPLORE is the pre-ACT Test given to 8th or 9th graders. Funding for the test this year was provided by the Stark Education Partnership and the Ohio College Access Network (OCAN).
