MENTORS IN THE MAKING PROGRAM @ CARNEGIE SCIENCE CENTER
Do you have a daughter or know a student in high school that is interested in STEM? A program out of CarnegieScience Center’s FabLab is looking for interested participants for their Mentors in the Making program.
Here's how it works! On a 1:1 basis, the mentors and mentees meet once a week (Tuesdays or Thursdays) in the Fab Lab for a two and a half hour session, from 5:30 - 8:00 pm. Each week, students work towards building a positive and rewarding relationship with their mentor, a STEM professional from the Pittsburgh area. Dinner is provided. Afterwards, the mentoring team works to design and create projects using our digital fabrication tools; namely laser cutter, vinyl cutter, 3-D printer, etc. There is a capstone project that each team works on together. At the end of the program, in early May, the student earns a computer and benefits from the experience of working with a caring adult, who can show them paths that lead toward a career in STEM. It is truly a win-win situation!
The FabLab is looking for students to participate each week. We have four women who are engineers that would love to mentor girls. We also survey participants to help us find a good match, but honestly, it often comes down to availability, choosing either Tuesdays or Thursdays. We are looking for students who qualify for free and reduced lunch. While there is no GPA requirement, we simply ask that students be interested in learning digital fabrication and willing to work with a STEM professional.
Please check out the introductory video.
