A Maker Mentor can either be a volunteer that supports our mobile makerspace called STE(A)M truck ™ (science, technology,engineering, arts, math) or a paid position. This is an ideal opportunity for individuals who have some expertise in engineering, electronics, robotics, 3-D printing, and the use of CNC tools, as well as more traditional activities such as metalworking, woodworking, and traditional arts and crafts.
We need the collective expertise within a community to make our programs work. If an individual knows one, or more, of these skills, we will harness their knowledge and have them use SteamTruck, as a “shop class on wheels” to close the opportunity gap within public education. And unlike the learning that takes place in many public schools, we provide the opportunity for real hands on making, designing and tinkering.
Commitments may range from one off demonstrations (less impactful) to continuous weekly/biweekly teaching and mentoring (most impactful) opportunities. Our programming takes place both during and after school.
