Student Research Employment Opportunity

Employment Opportunities


The Building Information and Technology (BITS) program is seeking Temple University students to mentor high school students in a virtual project-based learning Summer program. Every summer, the BITS provides a paid opportunity for high school students (14-18-year-old). Although the focus of the program changes every summer, the program will aim to virtually engage youth participants in activities geared towards improving their digital skills, broadening their understanding of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), train them on E-Learning Resources, and enhance their preparedness for entering university programs once they graduate from high school. Mentoring youth during this unprecedented time will look different than it normally does, but the impact as a mentor will still be life-changing.

Responsibilities Include:

Working with a collaborative team of graduate students, undergraduate students, and local high school students on research and development projects. As a mentor, you will supervise high school students through various virtual engagement activities and assist with implementation of digital experience and completion of the contextual learning projects.
