In-Person Panel at Olympic View Elementary School (Federal Way, WA)
Inspire IGNITE Students in STEM during an IGNITE Panel for students in 4th-6th grades at Olympic View Elementary School at 2626 SW 327th St Federal Way, WA 98023!
IGNITE aims to increase gender diversity in high-wage/high demand STEM fields, such as technology and engineering. Olympic View Elementary School serves a diverse student population, with high percentages of Latinx, Black, and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander students and students who speak English as a second language. 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 two hours for the event itself. Training must be completed by January 27.
We are also looking for a Spanish Translator to attend the event and provide live translation from English to Spanish. The Spanish Translator will attend a preparatory meeting with the organizer via Zoom.
Approximate time commitment:
New Volunteer: 4 hours – 2 hours prep (training, coaching, materials review) + 2-hour event
Returning Volunteer: 2.5 hours – 30 minutes prep + 2-hour event
