Hello from iPraxis!

My name is Bill Shorts, and I’m the volunteer manager for our wonderful organization. Founded in 2004 by educator and businessman Jeremiah White, iPraxis seeks to inspire middle school students from backgrounds underrepresented in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) to GET INTERESTED AND ENGAGED in science!

We always need undergrad and grad students, professors, retirees, and others to help in the classroom as mentors, as science fair judges, as presenters of special projects, and more. If mentoring, a background clearance is required.

Please visit www.ipraxis.org and our volunteer link, where you’ll find our sign-up page - https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Scienteer -- also, please call me at 215-966-6254 at your earliest convenience, so that I may field any questions and we may get to know one another a bit.

Thanks again!

Bill Shorts
