What do volunteers do?
You may volunteer for as little as a one hour session or as often as once a week.
We want to know what works best for you so we can design an experience that helps you build your resume and ensures your time is well spent.
We offer a wide range of opportunities:
- Leading activities or demonstrations
- Assisting with tours or events
- Serving as a science fair judge or acting as a mentor for young students
We host a lot of events on campus too, so you may be able to help with a one-day event like STEM Discovery Day or Astronomy Day.
We use a Canvas course for training and volunteer sign-ups. Contact us to discuss opportunities or to learn more!
