Being a Big Idea Week mentor means giving back to the community and influencing the next generation of makers and doers. You'll volunteer only a few hours of your time, but will have the chance to make a lasting impact on the students, the school and the community. Big Idea Week seeks STEM (science, technology, math and engineering) and design professionals to volunteer their time.

Please note: Big Idea Week is working with one school for 2017 to focus on curriculum and assessment improvements, and recruited a small group of volunteer mentors to support this year's program. We look forward to bringing the program to a wider school audience and involving a broader mentor cohort in the future!
