Join us for an introduction to the Mentor Matching Engine, learn about Washington High School’s successes, engage in conversation with students and their projects, and discover how you can become involved with this statewide program.
The Mentor Matching Engine (MME) is an invitation-based web platform that connects Illinois high school students and their teachers to STEM professionals who serve as online mentors. MME is an initiative of the Illinois Science & Technology Institute (ISTI). MME facilitates mentor engagement and collaboration through strategic matching, forum-style chatting, video conferencing and document sharing. By connecting mentors and students electronically, MME is able to offer high-quality mentoring experiences and overcome geographic barriers. The platform prioritizes student safety by completing background checks for mentors and placing teachers at the center of the student-mentor relationship.
