The kid we’re looking for:
- Mainly girls
- Ages 9-13
- Variety of backgrounds
- Looking for a super enthusiastic kid who is passionate about some aspect of STEM.
Kids who love STEM! We want to hear from a kid who looks up to a person who has, or is doing something awesome in the ‘STEM’ world. And perhaps see themselves doing something similar when they grow up.
For example, a kid who loves robots and wants to know how to build them. And they have looked at older people who have build robots. Or they are already building a robot themselves.
Energetic, natural, charismatic, not looking for a presenter, not looking for an trained actor, someone who is natural on camera, endearing, with lots of energy, but most of all,
someone who loves a part of ‘STEM’ and can tell us why they do, and what they want to do with it.
Send us a video with your answers to some of these questions! Your choice.
What’s cool about STEM?
What is your favorite invention in history?
What is a project you made in math or science class that you are really proud of?
Who is your biggest role model in your own life?
Name a person who works in science, technology, engineering, or math that you really admire. What do you think is interesting about them or their work? How is their life similar to yours?
What problem in the world would you most like to solve? How do you think you would solve it?
