In-Person Panel at Nautilus K-8 for 5th grade (Federal Way, WA)
Inspire IGNITE Students in STEM during an IGNITE Panel at Nautilus K-8 at 1000 S 289th St Federal Way, WA 98003!
IGNITE aims to increase gender diversity in high-wage/high demand STEM fields, such as technology and engineering. Nautilus K-8 serves a diverse student population, with high percentages of students who are Afghani, Hispanic/Latinx and Pacific Islander. Women, nonbinary, transgender, agender, and genderqueer professionals who represent these perspectives are highly encouraged to sign up as Panelists to share their stories and answer student questions!
This is an incredible opportunity to change an IGNITE 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.
The total time commitment is about 2 hours of pre-event preparation for new Panelists and 30 minutes of preparation for returning Panelists, in addition to 1.5 hours for the event itself (this includes early arrival at the school). Training must be completed by March 11.
Approximate time commitment:
New Panelist: 3.5 hours – 2 hours prep (training, coaching, materials review) + 1.5-hour event
Returning Panelist: 2 hours – 30 minutes prep + 1.5-hour event
