STEM Mentoring

This page is dedicated to the STEM Mentoring Grant, funded by the Indiana Commission for Higher Education. This grant supports mentors and mentees in 11 school districts in Indiana.

Welcome to the 2019-20 school year!  We are kicking off with a new round of mentees this fall.  We are excited to have you with us.

Program requirements–Mentees

We listened and your mentors told us that mentees needed a semester to acclimate to the program.  Instead of making videos of your classroom right out of the gate, we have a series of four webinars this fall to help you get started.
