because math and science build futures
We have an exciting opportunity for 3D-printing professionals who may be interested in serving as volunteer online mentors for students in grades 4–7. This is a light-touch, short-term volunteer effort for younger students who are engaged in STEM design projects.
Our students are from rural areas in California and the Carolinas, and include many Black/African American or Latinx girls. Most of these students have few if any opportunities to interact with STEM professionals, let alone women in the field.
Mentors exchange screened emails with the students, and we also provide the students with specific prompts to guide them in talking to the mentors. This requires about 2 hours a week for about 6 weeks during spring 2021. This US Dept of Education-funded project provides multiple opportunities for students in learning how to model and print beautiful and useful 3D objects.
We would love to feature Women in 3D Printing on our website, and especially spotlighting your role in the project.
