Berkeley Middle Schools: STEM Volunteers
The Community Resources for Science Be A Scientist (BAS) program is in need of STEM volunteer mentors for Spring 2019. As a volunteer scientist mentor, students will guide 7th graders through the process of designing and conducting their own scientific investigations in class over a 6-week period. This is a wonderful opportunity for students to serve as STEM role models while developing communication skills and gaining hands-on experience in important science outreach.
- Mentors must commit to one mandatory 2-hour Training Session: on-campus trainings are offered in the weeks before the start of each session. Training dates/times/locations TBA.
- Commit to attend one school lab period each week for the 6-week program (schedule program dates here)
- Guide 4-6 student mentees through the process of developing a testable question, designing an appropriate experiment, and gathering and analyzing data. Each student in your group will have the opportunity to choose an independent scientific question based on their own interests.
This program will take place from March 14/15 – May 2/3 (with gap weeks for BSUD/UCB Spring Breaks March 28/April 4) at King Middle School.
