Join iNERDE's Virtual Mentorship Program
In February, students at Waverley Girls’ High School will begin our after-school STEM program at their local Solar Learning Lab. For six weeks, students will participate in fun, hands-on STEM projects, as well as receive one-on-one mentorships!
iNERDE has partnered with Dell Technologies to create a virtual mentorship program between Global Dell employees and students in our STEM after-school program. Each mentor will tutor their mentee on basic STEM skills for one hour per week while also sharing advice, experiences and expertise on various STEM subjects.
If you are a current Dell team member, sign up here to become a mentor today!
