Virtual Mentor - Biologist/Medical Doctor Our students have expressed an overwhelming interest in epidemiology and we are looking for a volunteer to lead a team of students (13-18) on a project related to this field. The project timeline is 3-4 months to work closely with the students.
The Shoulders of Giants (TSoG) is an educational non-profit which has been revolutionizing STEM mentorship since 2013. Using his experience as an engineer and university-level educator, TSoG President Dr. Foland is leading the future of education by making everything available online, for free! Since 2018, TSoG has also been live-streaming lectures and projects on YouTube and Twitch for students around the world. TSoG has now grown into a collaborative international community, with a vast library of hands-on projects to create and cultivate any engineering portfolio.
Who's in the community? -- Students (13+), hobbyists, adult learners, educators, PhD professionals; anyone with a passion for learning!
