In this RTU, students meet with professionals from Amazon Future Engineer, Lockheed Martin, and Cisco as they develop the next phase in human space exploration.
  • Robotics Fulfillment Center Tour: Educators take students on a virtual tour of the Amazon Fulfillment Center and discover how humans and robots are working together to ensure that the products purchased online reach their final destinations efficiently and without damage. The interactive tour offers a standards-aligned look at the careers available in robotics and fulfillment.

Amazon Career Tours features additional resources to ensure lasting learning, including a key student learning guide that aids educators in navigating the career tours and explains key terms and ideas, and a student note catcher that captures the essential learnings of each activity. Accompanying educator guides feature materials such as background information, activities, and check-ins to make it simple for educators to incorporate the content into any lesson plan or learning environment.
