Mentors

Kids’ Vision mentors have a variety of backgrounds and work in the high tech industry. Our mentors are professionals who have applied an interest in STEAM to a rewarding career, they share their experience and help young girls see themselves making a similar journey.¬†Kids’ Vision recruits mentors inside the companies that host our programs and mentor our mentors. Kids’ Vision is about increasing girls’ interest and knowledge of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art+Design and Math), but is also about helping them to develop useful learning attitudes early in life; towards this end we mentor our mentors on how to facilitate learning for the girls. In the Spring 2015 program at Tesla we had Stanford Math Education Professor Jo Boaler mentor our mentors; with her assistance and the assistance of the New TeacherCenter we developed our mentor the mentors program.
