Mentor Information & Application:

Do you need some extra help in the lab? Do you want experience being a mentor? Would an extra $800 help you during the summer? You might be perfect for the Summer Mentoring program through CU Science Discovery. Every summer, Science Discovery brings high school students to campus to participate in a one month research experience.  Please do not apply to be a mentor if you are going to be gone for a significant portion July and you would not have anyone else to mentor your students while you are gone. Mentor labs are assigned two high school students.  We hope that these students will be involved in projects that help the lab move forward. The students are expecting to work 30-35 hrs per week and this could be anything (taking data, analyzing data, taking pictures, doing background research on an area you'd like to get into, setting up a new piece of equipment...). This program aims to give students a taste for real research. Students will attend a science communication workshop, where they will learn about writing abstracts, making scientific posters, and how to communicate science to the general public. Students will develop a poster to show at the Research Expo on July 26th. Here is a link to some frequently asked questions about the program.
