Scientists & STEM Professionals

Utilizing cities as laboratories for active learning requires continuous input from local scientists and STEM professionals. These are the volunteers who make it possible to connect scientific learning to the city in deep and meaningful ways.  Scientists and STEM professionals who volunteer can:

  • Provide valuable background information about your field
  • Increase students’ awareness of STEM careers
  • Connect students to field trip opportunities
  • Speak in classrooms
  • Invite students to your lab/workplace
  • Help to facilitate a demo for students
  • Create easy-to-build projects
  • Lead walking tours

If you are a scientist or STEM professional interested in contributing your skills and knowledge please email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) and tell us a little bit about yourself.

Check out these past volunteers to get an idea of how you could help at CityScience!
