Volunteering at SciTech
Put your skills and expertise to work for a great cause!
SciTech’s mission is to inspire learning through creative, interactive educational programs and activities. Volunteers can help us support this mission by assisting us in creating a learning environment that frames science concepts in accessible and entertaining ways.
We invite you to be part of our team encouraging people to engage with science and technology in fun and positive ways.
You can make great things happen by volunteering in the following areas:
Join the Team that encourages an excitement for Science!
Facilitate the experiences our guests and group tours have in the museum, perform awesome science demonstrations or assist in outreach programs
Join the Team that shares an enthusiasm for Customer Service!
Volunteer at our lobby desk or museum store, your enthusiasm and friendliness will make our visitors feel welcome and will make them want to come back again and again.
Join the Team that brings science concepts to realization!
Bring your carpentry, graphics or computer skills and assist with the design, build and installation of exhibits. The workshop also supports our IT needs so if you like to work with Mac and PC’s lend a hand making operations run smoothly.
