Due to the COVID19 impacts, all mentoring events are on ‘hold.’
We connect a team of professionals to a group of high school students to mentor and coach them through a Hands-on Project-based Learning experience. Using your area of expertise, your team will partner with a science or math class to outline a problem. The student-team will work on solutions throughout the academic semester/year and present their solutions back to your team. This relationship creates a positive connection for high school students with potential careers and pathways in STEM.
Due to the COVID19 impacts, tours are on ‘hold.’
WSU Tri-Cities provides tours designed for High, Middle, and Elementary Schools. Classes of students, under the supervision of their teachers/advisors, will get a specialized tour of the campus, meet faculty from multiple colleges to learn about possible careers through degree programs offered on the campus.
