Calling all Mentors

Our 5th-grade team with 100+ students wants to study existing ways we explore space. The teachers were hoping that each class (6 classes) could be assigned a mentor to listen to student ideas (Status Reports).

Time Commitment for Mentors:

Only one hour per week for 3 weeks. (virtual or in-person)

  • Week One: March 7-11
  • Week Two: March 21-25
  • Week Three: April 4-8

At the end of this adventure, the students will present a proposal for a mission to explore space. The final proposals may end up as podcasts, videos, websites, art, or other creative formats. The mentors listen and offer simple advice. Please email michelle.gasser@https://stemk12.org if interested.
