About

Come be a mentor for middle school students as they learn to work together as a team and build their engineering skills. Classes will meet on Thursdays and Fridays and you come come for one or both sessions. Schedules can be worked out if you can make it twice a month or more.

Since the focus is on building engineering skills, each week will entail a short-term engineering challenge that the students will complete to the best of their ability with their team. Mentors work with the teams to help the students think critically about their design solutions to see if there are ways to make them even stronger.

No specific knowledge in STEM required, only the desire to share your own knowledge and to encourage growth in students.
