The 140 Twitter Challenge is a scholarship competition designed to meet students where they are — on social media. Students respond to a question provided by HOPE on Twitter in 140 characters or less and the best response is awarded a $140 scholarship.
Bethany’s winning response to the question “What are you currently doing to make your world, university or neighborhood a better place?” was “I mentor and teach in a middle school STEM classroom encouraging kids to do well in math and science and pursue majors in STEM.”
Bethany, a junior electrical engineering major at Howard University, is an in-class intern at The Howard University Middle School of Mathematics and Science (MS)² . The class teaches core STEM curriculum; Bethany assists in the curriculum development and generates projects for the middle students. Additionally, Bethany spends time with students after school (as part of National Society of Black Engineers) to teach students about STEM careers, while aiding students with engineering projects to present at different NSBE competitions.
We commend Bethany for her work, we will reward her with a $140 book scholarship and pin her a “HopeDealer”.
Give HOPE. Live HOPE.
