DataEthics4All Foundation’s Research & Build College Prep Program matches a high school student with a Data and AI Expert for Cohort based Experiential Learning & Career Mentoring in Data Science, AI & STEAM that they’d perhaps pursue as a career.
Come up with 2 Project Ideas. Guide your mentees to learn how to learn. Through this program we hope to pass from mentor to mentee ways and methods to approach a new problem they aren’t familiar with, how to look at a problem from different perspectives, how to read papers, organizing results/work, and presenting findings.
Mentor's Time Commitment, Cohort Size and Meeting Frequency
Meet with your Cohort once every week for 10 weeks, 2 hours each for a total duration of 20 hours. The maximum Mentor to Student ratio per cohort is 1:5 One Mentor to 5 Students.
Each student in the cohort will get an opportunity to learn the fundamentals of data science, basics of Python, ethical framework and consideration in Data and Artificial Intelligence, build an AI Model and work on a group research paper.
Final Output at the end of 10 Weeks
At the end of 10 Weeks, every Student will have a AI Project on Github and have their name as a contributor to the Research Paper.
To ensure the highest quality of our STEAM in AI Program, we offer top compensation and generous pay to our Mentors. Pay Range is $25 - $100/ hour. Please fill out the Mentor interest form to learn more.
