Do you become completely caught up in finding solutions to difficult problems and puzzles? You don't expect someone to tell you the answer and take pride in figuring things out for yourself. Your search might start with Google, but it doesn't end there. Once you've become immersed in solving a problem, you can't let it go until you've succeeded at finding the best solution.

You work on authentic problems with an experienced mentor as your guide. Mentors don't lecture but rather help you learn and develop skills relevant to the work they are doing. Mentors provide in-depth feedback on your projects and make recommendations for improvement spurring additional growth in the process.
