September 13, 2017: 4-5 p.m. (EST) Register

Access to quality STEM mentors has been linked to student and teacher success.  Creating a process to develop, manage, and sustain mentorship relationships between STEM professionals and teachers and students isn’t easy. Tune in this month to learn about the steps being taken in New York and Utah to create meaningful STEM mentorships.

You will have the opportunity to learn about two very different strategies from the NY Academy of Sciences (including the 1000 Girls, 1000 Futures campaign) and the STEM Mentor Exchange or STEM MX (whose supporters include Boeing and the Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Development) that can inform the work within your state.

Dr. Meghan Groome is the founding Senior Vice President of Education at the New York Academy of Sciences which includes programs for primary, secondary and post-graduate students. Dr. Groome is an Adjunct Assistant Professor at SUNY Environmental Science and Forestry and the Principal Investigator and Co-Investigator on numerous National Science Foundation Grants. Brent Petersen is President and CEO of the STEM Partners Foundation and producer of the STEM Mentor Exchange, a.k.a. STEM MX; a mobile application used to connect teachers with skilled volunteers. Previously, Brent led business development for Comcast Spotlight in the Mountain Region, and directed a STEM education marketing campaign, “Curiosity Unleashed,” through the support of over thirty major companies and organizations in Utah.
