UC Berkeley SWE High School Engineering Program Fall 2022 Committee Application
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. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, feel free to reach out to us at swe.highschool.outreach@gmail.com.

Why do you want to join HSEP? (100 words minimum) *
What can you contribute to HSEP? (100 words minimum) *
What are some initial project ideas you may have for HSEP students?
*
It is totally fine to not have ideas right now, but it greatly helps to start thinking about them early on. They definitely don’t need to be fully fleshed out, but we are excited to hear about any potential ideas you might be considering. 

You will have plenty of guidance and time to design one before the program! Check out our website to look at previous projects: https://swe.berkeley.edu/hsep 
Are there any engineering-related lessons or workshop topics that you would be interested in teaching? Are there any critical topics you think we should include in our curriculum?
We are also looking for people to help teach a workshop or lesson plan related to engineering skills and  principles. If you have any ideas, know anyone who is willing to teach a lesson, or may be interested in teaching one in the future, let us know! If not, that is totally fine. 
Our HSEP sessions are on Saturdays 9am - 12 pm. Would you be available every Saturday from 10/15 to 11/19 during these times? *
We will have a break in between, depending on the mentors' schedules. If you cannot make it to specific weeks, please let us know in advance in the "other" option.
A copy of your responses will be emailed to the address you provided.
