Become/ Request an EPIC Mentor
Mentors Help our Teams Achieve More!
Are you an adult in the aerospace/aviation industry who wants to help our student teams be successful?
Consider becoming an EPIC mentor!
Our ideal mentors:
are actively working in or retired from the aerospace or aviation industry
have a STEM background in an aerospace, aviation or engineering discipline
are interested in interacting with teams via email, video or in person to answer technical questions and provide support as students design and build their airplanes.
are available to share their work experiences to help students explore a potential career in aerospace.
The commitment level is determined by the needs of each individual team, but should not exceed 10 hours per month and is limited to assisting (not leading) student teams.
Do you need access to another adult who has technical expertise to help your team be successful?
Mentors are available to interact with your team via email, video or in person to answer technical questions and help your team make design decisions.
Your assigned mentor can:
interact with your team from time to time to answer technical questions or clarify understanding of a technical concept.
answer questions about their work experience to help you consider a potential career in the aerospace industry
provide general advice on your airplane's design
Keep in mind, a mentor does NOT:
run, manage or lead your team
meet with your team on a daily basis
design or build any part of the project for your team
