What is STEM Mentoring?
The overall goal of STEM Mentoring is to positively impact the social development and academic achievement of youth ages 6-10. STEM Mentoring consists of fun, hands-on activities, group projects, and multimedia connections that engage mentors and mentees in a variety of STEM topics, with a particular focus on conservation. Through weekly group mentoring sessions and additional STEM enrichment activities, youth are exposed to inspiring scientists, engineers, and conservationists, who represent a variety of careers and education pathways. By providing consistent, high-quality, STEM-focused mentoring experiences, STEM Mentoring encourages a reduction in high-risk behaviors, improvement of academic success indicators, and an overall increase in knowledge of and interest in STEM topics and careers for participating youth.

What are Energy Engineers?
In the Energy Engineers module, mentors and mentees will explore renewable energy - including energy from the sun, wind, and water. They will learn about the different kinds of renewable energy, where to find them, and how using them can help keep our planet clean. Mentees will play games and do hands-on activities like making a solar fan, creating their own water wheel, measuring the speed of the wind, and more. This module will give mentors and mentees the opportunity to have fun and build meaningful relationships - all while learning how to save energy and protect the environment.


Explore what you can do to save energy and protect the environment.

We are scheduled to have 8 sessions with a fun culminating event with family and friends!
