Mentor Match Up

Happy New Year, everybody!  We’re feeling super-psyched about 2014, especially after spending last Saturday hanging out with students from the Penn Dental School.  Our plan is to match the high school sophomores from our Karabots Junior Fellows Program with mentors from the Dental School.  We kicked off the day with breakfast and a “speed matching” session where our 20 students spent two minutes talking to 20 different dental students.  It was a blast.

Seriously, a blast.  We can’t tell you how awesome it was to see all those smiles around the table. We couldn’t be more proud of our students and more grateful to the Penn students.

After the “speed matching,” the Karabots gave the Penn students a tour of the Mütter Museum, and we ended with pizza and a hotly-contested Jeopardy-style quiz game with teams  of Karabots and Penn students vying for a bag of candy.  Note to self:  no one likes malted milk balls.  All kidding aside, days like this are the reason we do this.
