FIRST Women in STEM Reception 2016, Part I, Basic Model

Buttons for each attendee
The FIRST Women in STEM Reception mentoring model is a finely honed, highly effective event.


  • Human resources, i.e., leaders and volunteers
  • Logistics, e.g., funding, time, place, food, decorations, AV, signage, name tags, handouts, brochure, photographers, program, follow-up, reporting, publicity, etc.
  • Keynote speaker/engineer 
  • Invitations/advertising the event multiple ways
  • Professional engineers to table mentor


What does a table mentor do? 
Generally two engineers sit at each table, meet the students, inquire about the students' interests and education goals, and often share their own experiences as well as their love for engineering and the reasons they chose engineering careers.
