Support EPICS High
Designing and delivering solutions that make a difference.
This exciting program is creating the next generation of social entrepreneurs and engineers! Engineering Projects in Community Service at Arizona State University (EPICS High) is an engineering design, service-based learning, and social entrepreneurship program for high school and middle school students that incorporates the engineering and human-centered design processes in providing real solutions to real world problems facing society. To identify and address these problems, EPICS High teams typically work closely with their schools or not-for-profit agencies.
Invest Your Time
Mentors provide valuable support to EPICS High teams as they work to identify problems, collaborate with stakeholders, build prototypes and deliver final products or services. With more than 25 schools in the program, and growing, we are looking for mentors to help support these amazing students. It is not necessary to have a technical background; we also encourage those that have a passion for helping youth, social entrepreneurship and driving community impact to get involved!
Industry mentors typically visit with EPICS High teams once or twice a month for 60–90 minutes during the school day depending on mentor and classroom schedules. We also ask that mentors attend a 1–2 hour training, either in-person or virtually, prior to starting the role. Interested? Please fill out the EPICS High Industry Mentor Interest Form linked below. Once received, we will work to partner you with a team in your preferred community.
