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:

  • Presentations
  • Leading activities or demonstrations
  • Assisting with tours or events
  • Serving as a science fair judge and/or acting as a peer 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 Science and Engineering Day or Astronomy Day.
