On-Demand Events Pick Your Own Date and Time

For on-demand events, educators get to choose the date and time for a virtual or in-person Panel, a virtual Work-Based Learning Experience, or an in-person Workshop. For some educators, it is easier to schedule their own IGNITE events.

IGNITE Educators can sign up for on-demand events by using the Host an On-Demand Event Form. Here, you tell us your date and time preferences. If you’re scheduling a Work-Based Learning Experience or a Workshop, you can choose your first, second, and third choice topics. 

On-Demand events are available virtually for all regions and in-person in regions specified on the form.

Pre-scheduled events are IGNITE Events where the company sets the date. The first educator to sign up may have an opportunity to request a preferred time for the event. 

IGNITE Educators can sign up for a pre-scheduled event by browsing the Event Calendar on the IGNITE Teacher Page.

IGNITE policy is to keep these events strictly for girls, young women, nonbinary, transgender, agender, and genderqueer students because our mission is to increase gender equity in STEM. Girls* don’t feel as comfortable sharing or asking questions when boys are in the room, and companies and volunteers who partner with us expect that only underrepresented genders will be attending, because they are focused on addressing the issue of gender representation in their workforce.

Only educators can sign up for IGNITE events. If you are a student, please let the IGNITE Educator at your school know that you are interested in this event. If you don’t have IGNITE at your school, please email contactus@ignite-worldwide.org to get started!

Yes. Educators are an essential part of the IGNITE Program! It is important that an IGNITE Educator is there to show students support and to be a continuing mentor at school when students have questions about STEM opportunities. At every event, educators have a chance to share information about STEM classes and clubs at school. Classes like Engineering and Computer Science and technical clubs are important for students to learn about while they are inspired with IGNITE!
