Become a Volunteer

miSci hosts a variety of events, exhibitions, and programs throughout the year. To successfully present these events, the Museum relies on the support of volunteers and community members. Are you a former engineer interested in helping to conduct a science demonstration? A former science teacher who would like to teach a course and help with educational programming? A college or high school student interested in sharing the wonders of science? Volunteers of all ages and backgrounds are welcome!
