Mentor fellow MIT students as they develop interesting builds that teach scientific concepts
Modeled after a summer program that brings experiential learning to high school students, Engineering Design Workshop (EDW) is designed to let people explore and build creative projects in small teams. After a successful remote version executed this summer with students around the world, we're running the program with first-years in the fall, and are looking for mentors to help teams on both a technical and project planning level. The program will take place over the fall semester, with teams of MIT students designing and building projects both for their own education, and as a vessel for teaching scientific concepts to K-12 students, both locally and abroad.
We're looking for ~6 students who:
Can devote 6-10 hours a week to mentoring and working with their team.
Have an interest in creative solutions to teaching scientific concepts.
Are interested in mentoring their fellow MIT students, and receiving feedback.
Can meet regularly with their team members to facilitate the projects.
