Bringing in community mentors would tie in the community to build solutions to community problems. It would also provide an adult mentorship and show students opportunities, possibilities and experiences they can have in the future. Girls would be able to see females in the STEM profession and it could boost their confidence.

Seeing themselves in role models is definitely a great strategy for getting kids interested in future STEM careers. What do you envision the students doing together with their mentors? What kinds of learning activities do you think they'd do together?
