If you’re 16 or older and enjoy science, these opportunities are for you:


Experience the day-to-day of the museum! Assist guests, answer questions, and clean exhibit areas. Exhibit areas and activities need to be “reset” throughout the day, and thoroughly picked up at the end of each shift. Floor volunteers can commit to morning (10am-2pm) or afternoon (1pm-5pm) shifts, or all day (with a 30 minute lunch break).


Work with teachers and campers in all day, day-long (Spring and Winter Break) or week-long (Summer) camps. Monitor children, assist with activities, clean up, serve snacks, etc. Summer camp volunteers commit to being at camp for a full week (5 days) from 9:30am-4:30pm.

Special Events

Assist staff members with special events (such as Maker Faire or Darwin Day), exhibit openings, or projects (such as Science Saturdays). Special events times vary.

Science Cart

Science cart volunteers spend 1-2 hours overseeing mobile lab carts on the museum floor, interacting with guests and providing them a fun, safe educational experience. We provide the training, materials and groovy lab coat! (Science cart volunteers must be 18+ years of age.) View the Flyer!
