Are you interested in working with high school students and encouraging females to pursue STEM?
For the past year and a half, UCB Society of Women Engineers' High School Engineering Program (HSEP), a 10 week program, has introduced female high schoolers to different engineering disciplines and given them the support to collaboratively work on a hands-on engineering project. This program has been designed to encourage and inspire high schoolers who may not have access to resources or education that allows them to explore engineering as a future career path.
We are looking for mentors for HSEP for this Fall!
We welcome all UCB undergraduate students interested in working with high schoolers and promoting STEM education among female youth to apply to be a mentor.
Each mentor will choose to take on 2 of the following 4 roles:
1. Curriculum Developer and Instructor
- Based on the engineering discipline of that week (to be decided in
collaboration with the facilitators), students will create a lesson and
activity and teach it in front of a class of around 30 high school
2. Teaching Assistant
- Every week the mentor will be walking around or seated with a
group of students and help guide them through the lesson and
activity taught and led by the curriculum developers/instructors.
3. Project Guide
- For the last 6 weeks of the program, serve as a project guide for a
group of 4 students working on an engineering project related to a
discipline explored earlier in the program.
- Create and design name tags, logo, shirts, water bottles, showcase
- Take photos on Saturdays and creatively document the program
(e.g. make a video)
