The National Council for Science, Technology and Technological Innovation (Concytec) launched a call for volunteers who wish to accompany the Bicentennial Ambassadors girls to generate a science-based solution.
The “Big Sister” program is aimed at female students or recent graduates of STEM careers (science, technology, engineering or mathematics) from a higher educational institution, who can serve as a source of inspiration for teams made up of ten girls from between 10 and 13 years through a virtual counseling program.
The virtual activities will be distributed in four sessions between May and July and will culminate with the presentation of a final work in which the girls will propose answers to the problems of their communities.
To participate as “Big Sister”, applications from students and graduates of a STEM career will be accepted. It is also necessary to have one day a week between May 31 and July 9 from 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. hours, plus three additional hours per week to fulfill assigned responsibilities.
Since the Zoom platform will be used, it is necessary for applicants to have a laptop or computer with internet access. Two induction sessions will be held between May 17 and 21, and between June 21 and 25.
The “Big Sisters” will be chosen progressively from among the candidates who complete the application form -available in Concytec social networks– before May 14, the date on which the call will close and the selection stage will be passed, which will end on May 19.
