Volunteer at SciTech

SciTech’s mission is to inspire learning through creative, interactive activities and educational programs. Volunteers can help 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.

From school groups to corporate teams, SciTech Hands On Museum has all sorts of projects and needs for volunteer assistance!

There are also national days of volunteering, such as MLK Day, that SciTech participates in. 

If you have need of community service hours or have a great idea for a project for the museum, contact us! 

We can make it happen together!

What is the time commitment to volunteer?

There are no commitments for volunteering! We do ask that you register online so staff know when you are coming and have a project ready for you.

Do I need to know a lot about science to volunteer?

No, we can teach you what you need to know to facilitate our visitors' experience. Of course if you happen to be a brilliant scientist, we would love to have you, too!

Can I choose which area I would like to work in?

Please express your interests! Do you like working with tools? Prefer to talk to guests? Want to have a script? Are you good with computers?

Are there any age requirements to volunteer?

Volunteers under the age of 16 need to be accompanied by an adult.

What do I need to wear?

Different areas require different clothes. If you are part of a group, your group shirt is fine. Work in the shop may be dirty; jeans and a non-graphic tee-shirt are fine. On the museum floor, please wear a non-graphic tee-shirt and khaki pants. Closed-toed shoes are required.
