Still seeking graduate student mentors for high school science competition


Dear Graduate Student -

  • Want to get back in touch with your own excitement about science?
  • Interested in broader impact by mentoring a high school student? 
  • Like to be a role model? Mentor a student in the Innovate to Mitigate competition!

High school students will brainstorm and test a prototype method to reduce atmospheric carbon dioxide. YOU will check in to their discussion forum online once a week for approx 4 months, to guide and mentor 1-3 teams. You will receive a stipend of $200 and a certificate of service. Most of all, you will derive satisfaction from making the world a better place.
