How It Works

We’re a social network. Our users create profiles to help them connect with mentors and mentees. High school students, upload your resume, post a biography, and use our integration with Facebook, Twitter, Github, and LinkedIn. Professors and professionals, explain your research interests and goals on your profile.

Made by students for students, Magikstra is the only social network that connects high school students of all areas to professors and professionals. We’re all-inclusive and we cater to every interest. We’re dedicated to helping you find the perfect mentor or mentee. No sign up fees, no lengthy applications, and no more endless searches.
