2016 IGED: Mentors wanted
Inspire the next generation of researchers
Argonne’s annual Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day (IGED) will take place on Thursday, Feb. 25, 2016, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Bldg. 240 TCS Conference Center.
The program is in need of mentors to accompany 8th grade girls throughout the entire day and encourage questions and participation in the program.
IGED is an all-day diversity outreach program designed for middle school girls to provide them an opportunity to learn about Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) careers. The program consists of an introduction and activity to science and engineering, followed by lab tours/demos, lunch with STEM mentors and a hands-on design-build activity.
IGED Mentor Details
Each student will be paired with an Argonne mentor, who will be her guide for the day. Throughout the day, the students will be encouraged to participate in large and small group activities that provide them opportunities to learn about a number of STEM careers.
Lunch and a light afternoon snack will be provided.
