We're excited to announce one of the newest volunteer opportunity in the JETS organization! GEC is an amazing opportunity to get real firsthand experience with mentoring young girls in unfortunate circumstances and underprivileged environments who might not otherwise have access to a high-quality education in STEM. Every visit consists of a brief lesson about a science or engineering topic, a hands-on experiment or build, and a recap to apply the experiment to the real world. These girls are incredibly bright, and it's a blast working with them and fellow volunteers.
GEC volunteering is open to both TAMS Juniors and Seniors. This year, we will be reaching out to Koan School in Denton. A couple of days before each outreach, volunteers will attend a brief orientation to get familiar with the STEM topic that they will later be teaching to the girls. Due to the ongoing pandemic, GEC will be hosted virtually via Zoom this year.
If you were not selected for Girls' Engineering Club or are unable to participate, fear not! JETS is introducing a brand-new VIRTUAL volunteer opportunity: SciVids! Click on here to learn more.
