Type the following information into the table:
Row 1: Col 1: Elementary School; Col 2: Focuses on introductory STEM courses and awareness of STEM occupations
Row 2: Col 2: Provides structured inquiry-based and real-world problem-based learning, connecting all four of the STEM subjects
Row 3: Col 1: Middle School; Col 2: Courses become more rigorous and challenging
Row 4: Col 2: Student exploration of STEM-related careers begins at this level
Row 5: Col 1: High School; Col 2: Focuses on the application of the subjects in a challenging and rigorous manner
Row 6: Col 2: Courses and pathways are now available in STEM fields and occupations
Set the height of the table to 4.8″. Apply Center and Center Vertically alignments to the first column of the table. Apply Center Vertically to the second column of the table.
In the table, apply the following shading:
•Red, Accent 2 to the cell with the text Elementary School
•Orange, Accent 1 to the cell with the text Middle School
•Dark Blue, Accent 3 to the cell with the text High School
On Slide 5 insert a Clustered Column chart. Replace the spreadsheet information with
the following information: Leaving cell A1 blank, type Percentage in cell B1. Populate cells A2:B7 with the following:
All Occupations 14%
Computer Systems Analysts 22%
Systems Software Developers 32%
Medical Scientists 36%
Biomedical Engineers 62%
Change the source data to use the range A1:B7.
Make the following changes to the chart:
• Remove the chart title, gridlines, legend, and vertical axis.
• Increase the font size of the x-axis (horizontal) to 16 pt.
• Add Outside End data labels and change the font size to 18 pt.
