External Resources is responsible for forging connections and collaborations with partner institutions. They also reach out to various community partners in order to find alternative summer mentoring and education resources for participants once the Studio: TESLA program is completed. When Studio: TESLA plans events such as Drop Everything and Design Day, External Resources heads up the organization and planning.
Internal Resources focuses on creating and implementing creative evaluation procedures for participants and volunteers to improve the program curriculum, facilitate internal development, and improve the overall Studio: TESLA experience. They also work closely with other CORE Team members to plan training events and social gatherings to foster a community of Studio: TESLA volunteers.
