Michigan Tech Summer Youth Programs Hiring for Summer 2023

Each summer for over 50 years, Michigan Tech Summer Youth Programs (SYP) has welcomed over a thousand youth from grades 6-11 to campus from across the country and around the world. We need your help to ensure they experience the Michigan Tech community we all know and love.

SYP students come for weeklong, hands-on, experiential learning in one (or more) of our 50-plus weeklong explorations in STEM, humanities and law. During their time at SYP, students gain confidence in their ability to be successful in college as they experience residential life, responsibility in arriving to class on time and exploring the beauty of the Keweenaw Peninsula.

We’re looking for passionate individuals who enjoy working with youth and want to inspire the next generation of doers and makers. Each year we hire 50-plus undergraduate and graduate students for a variety of rewarding experiences enabling them to build their capacity in leadership, communication and critical interpersonal skills.

If you or someone you know are interested in learning more about being a member of the SYP team, we encourage you to attend our hiring sessions or email us at outreach@mtu.edu.

Michigan Tech Mind Trekkers Seeking Student Volunteers for STEM Festival

Mind Trekkers, Michigan Tech’s traveling STEM roadshow, is seeking additional student volunteers to host hands-on STEM demonstrations at the Hidden Coast Festival in Escanaba, Michigan, on Jan. 26 and 27.

Guided by Michigan Tech students, pre-college festival attendees will discover firsthand the awe and power of science through experimentation. From being inside a bubble, to skewering a balloon without popping it, to playing a piano made of bananas — Mind Trekkers serves to bring communities together to support an educational ecosystem and strong future workforce in STEM.

Mind Trekkers events are a wonderful way for Michigan Tech students to give back to communities and develop public-speaking, communication and leadership skills. Students will leave campus Jan. 26 in the afternoon and return Jan. 27 in the evening. Proctoring is available by Center for Educational Outreach staff. Transportation, lodging, some meals and a daily stipend will be provided.

Interested students can sign up using our form. For additional information, please reach out to mindtrekkers@mtu.edu.
