Mentors are needed for the Real World Design Challenge.
Mentor high school students as they tackle real-world engineering challenges in a team environment. Students will receive specific scoring based on their use and development of online collaborative mentoring. This means you could mentor a team from one of the 18 participating states.
The Real World Design Challenge provides high school students the opportunity to work on real world engineering challenges in a collaborative environment. Students will use professional computer aided design software to develop their solutions and will also generate presentations that convincingly demonstrate the value of their solutions. This year’s challenge has a business jet theme and addresses aerodynamic efficiency in tail design.
A mentor’s responsibilities are to present science, engineering and mathematics concepts in a fun and exciting way, stimulate creative thinking and problem solving processes, provide advice and act as a role model.
