Are you looking for a fun way for your team to give back to the community and support technology education here in Massachusetts? February vacation is coming up, and the Museum of Science is recruiting corporate volunteers for multiple activities and shifts throughout the week.
Volunteers receive complimentary access to the Exhibit Halls, Omni Theater, Planetarium, Butterfly Garden, and 4-D Theater, as well as free parking, and discounts at the café and Museum store while volunteering. Volunteers must be 18 or older.
Here is how you can help:
- The Engineering Design Workshop is a hands-on activity that lets visitors become engineers by designing, building, and testing their own prototype solution to a given problem. Volunteers are needed February 16 to 22 for both morning (9:00am – 12:30 pm) and afternoon shifts (12:00 – 3:30 pm) and up to three volunteers are needed per shift. Volunteers will help facilitate the experiment, encouraging visitors to think creatively. No engineering background or prior knowledge is needed, just a willingness to work with Museum visitors. To register to volunteer in the Engineering Design Workshop click here or visit mos.org/volunteeredw.
- The Hands-On Laboratory is a fun, interactive learning laboratory program that encourages visitors of all ages to explore a variety of topics in the sciences – chemistry, genetics, nanotechnology, archaeology, and more – using many of the same tools and techniques as real scientists. Volunteers are needed February 18 to 21 for both morning (9:00am – 12:30 pm) and afternoon shifts (12:00 – 3:30 pm) and up to two volunteers are needed per shift. No laboratory background or prior knowledge is needed, just a willingness to engage with Museum visitors. To register to volunteer in the Hands-On Laboratory click here or visit mos.org/volunteerhol.
