Another Outreach Opportunity!

Hello listeners!

You may remember way back to Episode 7 when we talked about outreach, or maybe to the post I made just a few weeks ago, but you certainly know we LOVE outreach!

One of the things I really enjoy doing is mentoring other students virtually. If you’re interested in trying something like this, we have the perfect opportunity for you!

The Junior Academy of the Global STEM Alliance is looking for new mentors! This group is particularly fun because you have the chance to work with students from around the WORLD! It’s so fun and rewarding! These students are absolutely BRILLIANT!

I’ve included a message directly from them below. Please check them out! If you have any questions at all, I would be more than happy to talk to you about my experience!

The Junior Academy is currently recruiting mentors and experts with experience in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM)! Click here to apply to take part in this entirely virtual experience, and have the chance to shape the next generation of STEM innovators!

The Junior Academy introduces exceptional students to an online community where they gain access to best in class STEM resources and work together to solve real-world problems. STEM professionals will mentor student teams during 70-day innovation challenges, with multiple challenges a year for participants to choose from. You can be a part of this global community of solvers by applying to be a mentor or subject matter expert! The next challenge cycle begins in September.

Qualified mentors and experts are:

  • Graduate students, postdocs, or professionals working in a STEM-related field
  • Have some experience conducting scientific research
  • Able to access at least one communication device with internet capabilities
  • Passionate about engaging and inspiring the next generation of STEM innovators

Click here to learn more about this opportunity or start your application today. Applications for the fall challenges are due July 15th, 2017.
