The High School Engineering Program is an exciting opportunity for female high schoolers to gain engineering and coding experience by participating in hands-on experiments and projects in a small group setting. This is a 10-week long program. Along with weekly lessons introducing core concepts of various engineering fields throughout the 10 weeks, they will be working in teams of four to five to plan, design, and develop an engineering project during the second half of the program. Each team will be paired with an undergraduate mentor, who will work with the group to help guide the project and provide technical assistance when necessary.
Through this program, we hope to foster a greater understanding of and interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), and hope that the high schoolers will continue to pursue these interests, whether it be through additional coursework, picking up a STEM-related hobby, or obtaining a career in a STEM-related industry.
As a committee member, you will serve as the undergraduate mentor for one of the various student groups. You will lead a group through a project of your choosing over the course of 5 weeks. Some example projects from past HSEP programs can be found on our website: https://swe.berkeley.edu/hsep
. On average, the time commitment for committee members (mentors) is around 3 hours each week, which includes the time spent at HSEP classes each week.
Applications are due on Saturday, Sep 10th at 11:59pm PT.
