The National Science & Technology Medals Foundation (NSTMF) will host a virtual mentorship event in partnership with X, Alphabet’s Moonshot Factory. The event will take place on June 22, 2022 from 7pm to 8:15pm Eastern Time, and will connect students from the NSTMF network with X’ers for a unique networking and mentorship opportunity.
X is a leading force in radical innovations that aim to change life on Earth and beyond. Employing “moonshot thinking,” X’ers dream of the “undoable” and solving humanity’s biggest issues. X employs engineers, scientists, entrepreneurs, and inventors who think in unconventional ways. The company has been developing solutions to problems such as food supply, energy, connectivity, mobility, and more.
This panel is free to all attending students. Students will each be rewarded a $30 gift card to a food delivery vendor of their choice for registering for the event, attending the event in its entirety, and answering the post-panel survey that will be distributed at the conclusion of the engagement.
