Lead Science Activities at OMSI (age 14+) *STW 2012*

Volunteer together on the museum floor for a day! The day includes a short training session with OMSI staff and a half day of volunteering, facilitating hands-on science activities at various stations for OMSI visitors.

Groups generally break into smaller teams and staff each station for 30 - 45 minutes, then move on to another. The stations may include spin art, flubber, making casts of dinosaur claws, gyotaku (fish printing) and other easy-to-learn activities.

Quote from a past participant in a Science Activity Day: “We love science! This is a great bonding experience. It’s fun to help the community and get to know each other. We had a great time.”

Note: Volunteers must be age 14+ to volunteer on this project.
