Mentors in the Making 2019-2020 Application
You may have had someone in your life who recognized and helped groom previously unknown talents. They guided and encouraged you in your life choices, leading you to where you are right now, ready to give back. If you would like to do the same for someone else, please consider Mentors in the Making, a 1:1 mentoring program for teens at Fab Lab Carnegie Science Center. You, a STEM professional, are paired with an high school students who is underserved to learn 3-D printing, laser cutting, and vinyl cutting technologies as well as design software. Together you and your mentee, as well as other teams, collaborate one evening a week on digital fabrication projects. Projects vary in size and scope, and ultimately can have an impact in the community beyond the Fab Lab. Each team works through the engineering process, learning design and preparing prototypes, culminating with a capstone project and, more importantly, a positive relationship with a STEM professional for a high school student. No experience in digital fabrication technologies is required. In fact, we prefer that you not have any! You would be co-learning these technologies with your mentee. If you are interested, simply fill out this application and we will get in touch with you very soon. This program is scheduled to run November 2019 - April 2020.
