Mentors are invited to participate in two ways:
1. Scoring projects: In April 2017, we need assistance scoring all of the student projects after they have been submitted. Scoring takes anywhere from one hour to several hours (depending on how much time you are able to commit). We will have an informational webinar (which will be recorded) on 20 April 2017 at 10:00 am MT and then judging will need to take place sometime between 23-29 April 2017. Judging consists of filling out a Google form with your scores and feedback for the project.
The Informational Webinar for Judges will be held on 20 April 2017 at 10:00 am MT. On the day of the webinar, login here: https://zoom.us/j/621414156. If you are unable to attend the webinar, the recording will be available shortly after the meeting.
We are hopeful that STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) professionals, GLOBE alumni, teachers, graduate students, and other interested community members will volunteer to assist scoring the projects. The students really appreciate getting feedback on their projects in order to improve as researchers!
2. Mentoring students: We need volunteer STEM professionals to assist student researchers as they complete their research. Students may have questions about a science topic or the research process in general. While signing up does not guarantee that you will be contacted, we like to have a list of available volunteers for our students.
If you are interested in participating, please fill out the form below. We will contact judges in late March 2017. If you have any questions, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
