Calling all STEM role models and volunteers: CM2 needs your help!
CM2 is excited to participate in Girl Day @ UT Austin 2022 presented by UT Austin’s WiSTEM (Women in STEM). Kids and their chaperones will join in free virtual STEM programming for K-8th graders on the Gatherly platform on Saturday, February 19, 2022 from 1:30 PM – 4:00 PM CT.
On February 19, CM2 will be hosting a virtual, hands-on project called Build A City! CM2 is seeking individuals to act as project volunteers and STEM role models to work directly with kids and their chaperones through our online Gatherly event.
- PROJECT VOLUNTEERS: Project volunteer tasks include answering kids’ questions about the Build A City! project, and encouraging kids to engage in critical thinking about the city-building process. Project volunteers should be aged 18 years and up, but do not have to have a STEM background to participate!
- STEM ROLE MODELS: For volunteers who have a background in transportation, city and regional planning, architecture, and/or design, STEM role model tasks include answering kid’s questions about careers related to city-building, discuss research topics and/or career-based experience in their STEM field, and encourage kids to pursue a future career in city-building STEM fields.
If you would like to participate, please sign up by Tuesday, February 15, 2022.
We ask volunteers to consider participating for a minimum of one (1) hour during the 1:30 – 4 p.m. CT event. If you have any questions, please contact Noah Pope (volunteer coordinator) for more information.
Thank you! We can’t wait to make Girl Day 2022 a success!!
