Volunteer Opportunity

Aug. 26, 2013

Are you interested in helping elementary students understand science by engaging them in hands-on activities?  Then Scientific Thinkers is for you!  The Scientific Thinkers program is designed to bring scientists into the 1st - 5th grade classrooms at Innis Elementary, a Columbus public school.  The Scientific Thinkers program sends scientist volunteers out to the school every other week during the school year to teach an inquiry based lesson (the lessons will be available prior to going to the classroom).

Before going to the school, each volunteer must complete an orientation.  The fall orientation for this program will be this Thursday, September 5, at 2:00pm in 1080 Physics Research Building.  

Please let us know if you are unable to attend this orientation session, but are interested in volunteering for the program.  Please RSVP to if you plan to attend.
