SMASH Rising is a 4-week early exposure experience for SMASH alumni to gain access to the workplace and begin building skills to succeed in STEM. Using design + prototype thinking, alumni will work to solve relevant challenges being experienced by our company partners. Alumni will have the opportunity to intern at top-tech companies and participate in weekly seminars to further prepare them to establish and excel in a STEM career between June and July 2018.
Each team will have a Project Manager who will lead and support alumni throughout the 4-week experience.
The pod can effectively be seen as an internal pop-up innovation lab for company partners.
