E-Mentors Needed for the SOARS Academy

Wish you could mentor a student, but don’t have the time to dedicate to a research internship?  Why not become a SOARS Academy Mentor? The SOARS Academy 2014 is a new one-week immersion experience at NCAR that is intended to help college students explore careers and get exposure to research in the atmospheric sciences.  Following the week-long Academy, students will have the ongoing support of the SOARS program and of a mentor who will remain in touch during the school year through monthly phone calls, emails or webchats.

We are looking for scientists, engineers and programmers who can spend a few hours with a SOARS Academy student for a job shadowing activity on Tuesday, June 17th, and then follow up on a monthly basis during the coming fall semester.  Mentor support will be provided.  Join us!

To learn more,  please contact Val Sloan at vsloan@ucar.edu or 303-497-2572, or visit the SOARS Academy web page.

Will this event be webcast to the public by NCAR|UCAR?:
