Scientists Urgently Needed to Mentor Students Online is seeking scientists (undergraduates through retired/emeritus) willing to mentor middle and high school students this fall (Sept – Nov).

We expect over 1000 student teams and we don’t have enough mentors to work with them all!

Mentors work online with 1-3 teams of students to help them design and carry out investigations on a variety of plant science themes. Mentors post on the team’s webpage about 3 times a week while the teams are active to help students think through problems, offer encouragement, and share their passion for plants and science. We’re expecting to have especially large need for mentors willing to work with high school students on our “Power of Sunlight” photosynthesis and respiration theme.

It only takes about an hour a week, and is an easy way to get outreach experience and make a real difference to the next generation of scientists and citizens. Read about a new mentor’s experience here:
