Free Art and Science Training Application Deadline

May 19, 2021

Are you or someone you know looking for ways to combine art and science to engage youth? Now’s your chance to become a Cool Science Mentor!

Our online workshop is for adults who work with at least ten K-12 youth in Massachusetts, Southern New Hampshire, Kansas, or Missouri. We provide the art materials and supplies. You get to learn from home. Win-win!

Each workshop series consists of three online sessions. You can choose to attend one of the two options below:

Early June 2021 Series: Part I – June 7th, Part II – June 9th, and Part III – June 11th
4 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. (EDT) / 3 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. (CDT)

-OR-

Late June 2021 Series: Part I – June 22nd, Part II – June 23rd, and Part III – June 24th
4 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. (EDT) / 3 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. (EDT)

During this workshop series, you will learn how to educate youth about the science of extreme weather through artistic expression.  You will enhance your understanding of both science and art, which will help you become a better youth mentor.  You will also learn about an exciting art contest for youth.

BONUS! Online workshop participants will receive:

  • Art and science resources
  • Art supplies and lesson materials
  • A pro-rated stipend of up to $200 based on the number of submissions to the Cool Science Art Contest*

*Mentors who attend all three sessions of a workshop series and submit their accordion book will receive $50. Trained mentors will also receive $15 for each mentee that submits a piece of artwork, an artist statement, and an accordion book to the Cool Science Art Contest, up to a maximum of $150.  All stipends will be paid after the contest submission deadline has passed.

You will also get a chance to provide feedback in surveys and focus groups for the project’s evaluation, if you are interested.
