Counselors and Volunteers needed
March 15, 2013
The 2nd Energy Academy will take place from June 16 to 22, 2013. The purpose is to inspire STEM teachers and students in energy sciences and engineering. This is an immersive program and will consist of: (1) talks by Purdue researchers and industry leaders, (2) tours, (3) hands on activities, (4) projects, and (5) policy debate exercise. We will have approximately sixty exceptionally talented high school (10/11th grades) students and secondary teachers. The Energy Academy presents an excellent opportunity to faculty for their broader impact activities. Please let us know if you would like to participate in this activity. Specifically, we are looking for faculty who have hands on activities/projects, or would like to give talk or mentor teachers/students for group projects. Please send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to participate.
Also, we are interested having Purdue students (UG/Graduate) be counselors and volunteers. Counseling/volunteering in this program is stimulating, challenging and rewarding, and provides a unique opportunity to gain experience learning about energy, interacting with the high school students as well as teachers. The live-in setting(Counselors only) also provides a rich environment for developing interpersonal skills, leadership skills, and exploring self-growth. The counselor opportunity is a paid position.
