There are several ways to get involved in the Science Slam.
Please read about the volunteer opportunities below.
Each exhibit needs a volunteer to take ownership. Besides leading or assisting an exhibit, you'll make sure it gets prepared and set up. It doesn't matter if you have an idea or not. If you like science and working with kids, the Slam needs you! Click the above button to sign up for a designated volunteer slot.
If you have your own idea check out the below.
Science Slam Exhibits are learning stations that give volunteers a close-up interaction with students, typically on a table with a canopy. Visitors just walk up and learn, no reservation is required.
As an Exhibit Leader, you will:
Pull together the materials for your exhibit
Make sure it gets set up at the Slam
Educate visitors who stop by (the best part!)
You don't have to do it alone! We'll connect you with Assistants to help.
Upcoming Volunteer Info Sessions:
1. Feb 23rd 8:15am in B7
2. Feb 27th 730pm via Zoom
Q: Want to interact with students, but with only day-of-event responsibilities?
A: Be an Assistant! You can help set up and run exhibits or labs, getting all the fun with less time commitment. (Some Leaders may need help from Assistants prior to the day of the Science Slam event, if you're interested.)
General Event Volunteers
We need volunteers to support the services that make the science possible! In addition to set-up and clean-up, volunteers are needed during the event to greet volunteers and guests 👋, run the snack bar 🍿, and generally facilitate the experience for the community 😃. If you have any ideas you'd like to share, we'd love to hear those too!
