FY22 BoSTEM Virtual Sessions
What Virtual Opportunities Can I Volunteer For?
STEM Chats:STEM Chats are approximately 20-30 minute dialogues intended to provide students with the opportunity to learn about STEM jobs and career pathways. We will explore questions related to education experience, job experience, and how current professionals established the career they have now. Format of the sessions are intended to be a conversation/discussion with time at the end for participants to ask questions. We are finding this to be a great way to explore careers or fields that someone may never heard of, from real people doing the work. BoSTEM will support volunteers with a brief training on how to mentor students in STEM, provide example formats for interacting virtually, and moderate the session to facilitate dialogue. Volunteers are encouraged to add their creativity to the format of their meeting!
STEM Bites:Share your passion for STEM with middle and high school students in a quick, "bite-sized", demonstration or presentation (5-15min). Using a virtual platform, present a demonstration or provide a basic overview of one STEM concept, practice, or skill related to your current job. STEM Bites are a fun and quick way for STEM professionals to connect with students virtually and share their expertise on one STEM practice, skill, or concept.Please fill out the information below and the BoSTEM Coordinator will confirm your registration details!
Example: "I am a scientist working in a lab, and I will demonstrate one of the ways I remove impurities from samples."
Volunteers are encouraged to get creative in their approach, yet remain effective in their demonstration given the time constraint. Through these STEM Bites, we hope to combat the stigma of STEM by demonstrating to students the endless applications of STEM concepts, skills, and practices to real-world problems.
Critical STEM Conversations:Do you bring a unique perspective to the STEM career pathway experience? To highlight Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the STEM career pathway experience, these 15-20 minute conversations provide students to hear from a professional that may encounter similar challenges in their pursuit of STEM education. Topics can cover race, ethnicity, cultural background, gender, sexuality, mental health, disabilities, religion, or anything else you feel is "critical" to your story that impacts/impacted your STEM career pathway.Registrations are accepted on a rolling basis.
