performance. Other studies have also shown that through mentorship
programs, college-age students had dramatic improvements in selfesteem, interpersonal and problem-solving skills, community service
self-efficacy, political awareness, and civic action.

Over the years, students have produced some groundbreaking
innovations and findings. Some of these remarkable achievements
include:

What separates Solve-It Berks and Solve-It Berks Kids is the
fact that they incorporate global professional mentors to provide
an expansive list of resources for students to learn from. In
addition, these initiatives ensure every student, teacher, parent, and
community member has access to the tools and resources they need
to help students succeed in their future careers.

the wound dimensions to a 3D printer to print a personalized
wound packing material suitable for the size and tissue damage of
the wound
*	 A feed for silkworms that increases silk production
*	 A student who replicated the initial Fluoxetine trials on
C.elegans by testing Ashwagandha root - an internationally
recognized project

How Can You Get Involved and Help Expand the
Minds of Our Youth?

* A student who was the first to find increased expression of the
SQSTM1 protein in late-stage osteoarthritis that was previously
believed to increase expression in Paget's disease alone - this
project was named one of the top four Biomedical Research
Projects by a high school student, internationally

We would love to involve the Berks County
Medical Society in the SRI program to help Berks
County students of all grade levels learn and excel
both in the classroom as well as the community.

SRI Helps Create the Solve-It Berks and SolveIt Berks Kids Initiatives

Solve-It Berks is actively looking for speakers who are willing to
devote a maximum of one hour of their time this school year (20202021) to present on a Zoom seminar.

To address educational and business/industry challenges of the
current pandemic, SRI continues to evolve and has partnered with
the Berks County Intermediate Unit (BCIU) and Career Ready Berks
(CRB) to create an interdisciplinary, project-based program that
provides students the opportunity to have "Voice and Choice" as a
part of their learning journey. Best of all, this offering is 100% free
to all Berks students Pre-K to 12th grade as well as teachers - over
120,000 individuals.
Through the Solve-It Berks and Solve-It Berks Kids programs,
students have the ability to learn from inspirational leaders and
mentors in Career Pathways which allow students to learn about
solutions to real-world problems and areas of research of their
interest.
Solve-It Berks and Solve-It Berks Kids provides a unique
digital and/or hybrid student-centered experience through online
seminars. In the program, students can gain firsthand insight and
experience into various career opportunities that are of interest to
them through professional internships. Such an experience can help
reduce educational barriers while developing a workforce learning
experience.
Recognizing the benefits to both K-12 and college-age students,
Albright College undergraduate students will facilitate Zoom
seminars. In a 2020 study published in the Journal of Youth and
Adolescence showed that students who work with college-age
mentors had significant improvements in both social and academic

The goal of your participation is to inspire individuals so that
your story can motivate the next generation of innovators to follow
in your footsteps and make a difference.
While the live seminar will be available to those who intend on
logging into the Zoom invite, the seminar will also be recorded so
that those who could not attend live, can watch the replay at their
convenience.
The format of Solve-It Berks and Solve-It Berks Kids was created
with respect for professionals' time and limitations in schedules by
asking for a maximum 1-hour time commitment during the 20202021 school year. The 1-hour time commitment includes:
1. Seminar- Zoom
a.	10-15 minutes about your career, company, field
b.	10 minutes to explain/identify a problem, issue, or edge
of knowledge question in your field (can be 2 to 3 issues if
appropriate)
c.	10 minutes for student/moderator questions
d.	Hard stop at 40 minutes
2. If a student develops a "Visionary Solutions Proposal" in your
field, we ask that you:
a.	 Watch a video presentation from the student - maximum
8 minutes
b.	 Complete a 5 min. feedback form for the student
