Calling all STEM enthusiasts! If you love to work with young people and open their eyes to science and technology, we need your help! The "Great Science Academy" is an immersive, hands-on STEM program for grades 6-9 that meets on Saturday mornings from 9 - 1:30 p.m. You can get to know the scholars, and coach them as they work on various challenges and projects. And: help them learn even more by sharing your technical knowledge and expertise!
Mentors should be ready to go with the flow, and comfortable with a little chaos. They should feel comfortable approaching youth and engaging them in random conversation or specific learning goals.
