ABOUT THE EXPO

The Arts + STEM Expo is a fun filled day of interactive activities, presenters, mentor sessions and expositions of local companies. This event will connect students in grades 5-12 to STEM opportunities and build meaningful connections.

To further US2020 RTP's mission of bringing STEM outreach to girls, racial minorities, and low income students, we are hosting an interactive event to highlight the intersection between art and STEM, the career paths and fields of study students may not typically be exposed to.

 

BECOME A MENTOR!

You can make an impact and inspire future generations to become STEM professionals. Interested in joining the Speed Mentor portion of the Expo? Speed mentoring will engage over 100 mentors, with students in lighting 5 minute rotations. After introductions, the mentor and mentee will take turns rolling a six sided die that has prescribed questions for both parties to answer. These questions are fairly general and universal. They allow for greater discussion, at least to the extent that time allows. The hope is that the student will gain much greater understanding of the different paths people take to their STEM careers. To register for speed mentoring, please fill out the survey form: http://svy.mk/2dqdcwK

US2020 RTP is always searching for mentors to connect mentors and students. If you'd like more info, check out the US2020 RTP page and get in touch! See an actual classroom mentor session in 360º (can view with VR set) https://littlstar.com/videos/d0c7d882
