Curiosity Machine engages a pool of professional scientists, engineers and STEM students who can act as mentors for students.
These dedicated volunteers work to inspire the next generation of inventors! On Curiosity Machine, mentors:
- Interact with students as they submit text, picture, and video documentation of their design challenges by answering questions and directing learning
- Give positive feedback to students working through the engineering design process
- Support teachers by being a source of detailed, one-on-one feedback for each student via text, picture, or video response
How do I get mentorship for my students?
Mentors can be secured through purchasing a Curiosity Machine membership with mentorship feature.
Curiosity Machine mentors are fully vetted by Iridescent and complete a training to ensure safe, positive interactions with students. Mentors typically respond to student submissions within 48-72 hours.
