We are looking for professionals with experience in design, electronics, and/or fashion who can commit to working with students for 1-2 hours a week for 6 weeks to develop wearable technology projects.  
Mentors share stories from their practice, offer positive feedback, and gently guide teams to the completion of their projects.  The theme of the design challenge is Safety.
Please review the Mentor Info Sheet and complete the mentor application if you feel this opportunity is for you!
**We ask all mentors to attend a mentor orientation to be held the week of September 27th and the final exhibition of students work to be held at a co-working space or art gallery on November 6th in the early evening.
