Mentoring Opportunities

These organizations provide opportunities for UChicago students to mentor younger scientists.

Argonne National Laboratory Educational Programs and Outreach

Contact: Jessica Burgess, stemoutreach@anl.gov Website: www.anl.gov/education; join the education volunteer listserv

Argonne is a Department of Energy multidisciplinary science and engineering research center, where talented scientists and engineers work together to answer the biggest questions facing humanity, from how to obtain affordable clean energy to protecting ourselves and our environment.  Educational Programs and Outreach uses immersive and engaging programs to create STEM pathways for students throughout their journeys. 

Education volunteers play a critical role in shaping attitudes and understanding among our next-generation scientists and engineers. By becoming an Education Volunteer, you will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of events focused towards K-12 students and their families. 

Opportunities: STEM Festivals, Career talks/days with regional schools (K-12),Panel sessions, workshops for students, Competition judges/volunteers, summer camps and much more. Currently, all events are virtual. Most relevant disciplines: Any science or engineering area
