Science Career (Base Game )

"An investment in knowledge pays the best interest." -Benjamin Franklin

If Benjamin Franklin played The Sims he would totally be doing a career in Science.  Totally.  You know why?  Because Science is cool, that's why!  Science is sexy, Science is hip, Science would buy you a glass of beer if you were thirsty and a glass of wine if you were celebrating, because that is how Science rolls!

When you are ready to begin your career in Science (and it would be a great idea for you to pre-level Gardening, Fishing, and Handiness before you do that) head over to the Science Lab and sign up!  Once you get that done, you can do some more work on your skills and do Science-like things to level that and away you go!

Helpful Traits:  Ambitious, Angler, Charismatic, Genius, Green Thumb, Handy

Associated Lifetime Wishes: Become a Creature-Robot Cross-Breeder / Renaissance Sim


Dressing the part for your Science Career!

-- Career-based Books --
These books are obtained by completing career challenges at the appropriate level and cannot be obtained any other way in the game.  It is not known if reading them helps your Sim in any way, but there is a rumor that it might?

Note: The career-specific books are divided here between the regular ones that are obtained by playing through the career, and the special books that can ONLY be obtained by first building a Time Machine as an Inventor and then traveling back or forward in time (respectively).  The books are included here because they are an offshoot of the science-based pathing...
