Imagine a setting where kids are challenged to solve a problem like launching a water rocket or making a bridge or a paper tower. Instead of a teacher, you see a mentor working with those kids, helping them use different tools and materials to help them materialize their ideas.
As a Maker Mentor, you can help enhance the learning experiences of young students (between ages of 8 – 14) using technology, art and making. It is an opportunity to engage and nurture young minds through hands-on fun practical activities. The program begins with a free design challenge on December 10, 2016.
If you are selected, you will get an opportunity to enroll in the Maker Mentor Program that lasts for 6 months. As a part of the Maker Mentor Program, you will be also invited to a two day Making Maker Mentor Workshop at Karkhana.
Besides the workshop, based on your interest you will be mentored by Karkhana team members. As a Maker Mentor, you will also have access to Karkhana network of cool hackers, makers, designers, artists and engineers.
A Maker Mentor could be anyone [between age 18 to 24] who is open to new experiences and eager to learn new skills. As a Maker Mentor we expect you to be responsible and committed.
Please fill this application form.
*Note: The selected applicants should be able to pay NRs. 1100 for the two day Making Mentor Workshop followed by one free design challenge. FAQs
