Ideally, I’d like to see a TI mentor paired with non-TI mentor for each student so that the TI mentor can help provide access to tools, device knowledge, etc. while the non-TI mentor could be more an expert in the open source project area. Having multiple mentors for the student is good to ensure they can contact someone on a frequent basis.
