IEEE invites you and your organization to join IEEE and Cricket Media in inspiring the next generation of engineer, scientists and technical professionals to the STEM workforce.
Recently we interviewed Lisa Hamlin, a teacher at in Flushing, Queens, New York City. Lisa has been engaged with the TryEngineering Together program for the past two years, both years with a third-grade class of thirty-two students. Here is what Lisa has to say.
Are you interested in a STEM program that supports economically disadvantaged students and integrates employee volunteerism? Listen to the on-demand webinar to hear directly from Northrop Grumman and Schneider Electric.
During the webinar you will learn:
Over the course of the 2019, several of us at Cricket Media had the privilege to serve as working group members on MENTOR’s just published paper on effective best practices for eMentoring. The report is a testament to the growth and tremendous potential for eMentoring.
Beyond offering best practices, the report discusses:
This blog post highlights 9 key excerpts from the report.
Student mentoring is proven to be highly effective, but there is a large group of students who need mentoring, a smaller group of people willing to mentor, and an smaller overlap when you factor in cost, time, travel, coordination, and safety issues.
eMentoring overcomes key mentoring limitations dramatically increasing the number of people who can effectively mentor.

“They’ve given up hope in learning,” Mrs. Jackson told us, describing the 10-year-olds in her Jacksonville, North Carolina class. Many of her students were second language learners, some were homeless, and all were economically disadvantaged. She was seeking a solution that would both educate and motivate her students to see beyond their current world and discover their potential. She lacked role models and adult volunteers willing to come help in her local community. Mrs. Jackson knew that doing this on her own was nearly an impossible task. Then she discovered eMentoring, offered on the CricketTogether platform, free to schools, which connected her with a classful of eMentors from a business located thousands of miles away. Through eMentoring, Mrs. Jackson was able to give every student their own adult eMentor.

On 24 December 1968, I was glued to the television watching the transmission of the Apollo 8 astronauts as they orbited the moon. Earlier that day, Frank Borman, Jim Lovell, and Bill Anders had fired up their service propulsion system engine, placing them and their spacecraft into lunar orbit and becoming the first humans to visit another planet. Their pioneering flight paved the way for the Apollo 11 lunar landing seven months later…
The STEM economy is here. STEM jobs are growing faster (42% faster) and pay better (29% better) than non-STEM US sectors. But women and minorities are terribly underrepresented in STEM fields. To close this gender and race gap and better position women and minorities to participate in the new STEM economy, we must act now.
To learn more about the STEM opportunity, the gender and minority gap and why we must inspire and encourage girls and minorities to STEM while they are young, please check out the TryEngineering Together infographic. Feel free to share and download it.
