Become a mentor
Join us in creating change
Issues of equity, access, and diversity in STEM education continues to be an important national issue/ conversation. Providing children with a strong foundation in STEM education multiplies their educational and professional opportunities and can thus change their life. The Minnesota Academy of Science is opening a new program called FORSE to begin providing local students with STEM mentors. Mentorships have proven to be valuable aspect in student success and empowerment and we want to provide this resource to student populations, who are traditionally underrepresented in STEM fields. FORSE mentors will work to help students through their journey to participate in the Minnesota State Science & Engineering Fair and/or the Junior Science & Humanities Symposium by assisting them with conducting research for their project. We believe in the success of our youth programs, and we believe in our community, but we need your help.
If you believe that you, or someone you know would be a good candidate to mentor a FORSE participant, please send an email containing contact information, any applicable qualifications, and how you found out about our program to Sara Gomez at firstname.lastname@example.org
