Wednesday, 5 August
For Mentor Day, SIGGRAPH 2009 is inviting students from two New Orleans high schools (Algiers Technical Academy and the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts) to learn about computer graphics and interactive techniques. Each group of 3-5 students with similar interests will be guided through the conference by two attendee mentors who will share their experience and wisdom.
If you can devote a few hours to mentoring these bright, energetic students, please complete the sign-up form. This is an experience that could shape major life choices for these kids and inspire fullfilling careers. And you will learn a lot from them!
Mentor Day is organized into two sessions on Wednesday, 5 August: 10 am to noon and 1 to 3 pm. The sessions begin in the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, Room 269.
Mentors must sign up in advance using this form.
