In-Person Panel & Workshop at Eastern WA Computer Science Fair (Wenatchee, WA)
Join IGNITE for a unique opportunity to inspire high school girls, nonbinary, transgender, agender, and genderqueer students from across Washington State!
The Eastern Washington Computer Science Fair will be held in-person at Town Toyota Center: 1300 Walla Walla Ave, Wenatchee, WA 98801, with an estimated 800-1,000 students in attendance.
We are looking for volunteers to support four 40-min breakout sessions between 11am-2pm, each for around 25 IGNITE Students, including two sessions sharing your story on an IGNITE Panel and two sessions working with students in a UX Design Workshop activity (curriculum provided, no experience needed). Ideally, volunteers will be able to support all sessions. If you are only available for a portion of the event, please share your availability upon signup.
IGNITE aims to increase gender diversity wage/high demand STEM fields, such as technology and engineering. Women, nonbinary, transgender, agender, and genderqueer professionals working in these fields are highly encouraged to sign up.
Participating schools have a high percentage of Hispanic and Latina students. Volunteers who represent these perspectives are highly encouraged to sign up.
This is an incredible opportunity to change a student’s life! After signing up as a panelist, volunteers are required to review our 10-min Panelist Training Video at least once per school year and attend a live, interactive Virtual Panelist Coaching Session if they have not attended one in the past. Training must be completed by Friday, Nov. 4.
Lunch is provided for all volunteers.
