How Passion Projects Work

Our goal is to make the creation of your passion project as straightforward as possible. You’ll meet one-on-one with the mentor 10+ times over several months to ensure your independent project is nurtured from inception to completion.

  • Step 1:


    Brainstorm Ideas

    To start, you’ll tell us your areas of interest, and we’ll use that to pair you with your mentor. Your first meeting with the mentor will be a free, 30-minute session that will help you get to know each other and work on brainstorming ideas. From there, the real work will begin!

  • Step 2:


    Build a Portfolio

    Once you decide on an idea, you’ll work with your mentor on how to implement the project. During this phase, you’ll create a website and work out the details required to bring your project to life.

  • Step 3:


    Submit Your Project to Competitions

    Once you have something to show off, your mentor will help you find conferences or competitions where you can submit your work. If you need help writing an abstract, creating a poster, or writing a paper, your mentor will assist you. Finally, your mentor will show you how to keep the project running.
