Become an intern today! Meet new people and make new friends, while advocating for girl’s empowerment through our virtual STEAM* inspired curriculum at local elementary schools in Oakland. Make a difference being a mentor and exploring hands-on science with elementary girls. We focus on a combination of STEAM based projects and demonstrations, career exploration, and SEL (social emotional learning) such as building up positive body image and strengthening their self esteem. We also have a new Youtube series with a video uploaded every Friday. In these videos, our mentors demonstrate how to do fun science projects that students can do at home while breaking down complex STEAM topics. No prior STEAM experience is necessary to join, we are looking for diverse, strong and compassionate mentors to be with the girls.
