Mentorship Opportunities

School Talks

Bring to life a topic with a lecture or classroom discussion lead by experts working in the field. In-person or virtually, this is a great way to engage several grades all at once who are looking for a deeper dive on a general subject. 

Group Sessions

Share a group mentoring session to learn alongside others who share your interests. Ideal for small groups such as birthday parties, school classes, clubs, or just a group of friends who want to explore a topic together.


Join our Mentors on their excursions into the field for special live adventures where you get to experience the action alongside them. Field Trips can take place in-person when possible or virtually via live streams.
