Volunteers at Discovery Station don’t have to be a rocket scientist! If you love to interact with children of all ages and inspire them through STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, & Math) initiatives — you should consider becoming a member of the Discovery Station Volunteer Team! Volunteers allow Discovery Station to tap into skills and experiences beyond our staff, give new learning experiences to students and emerging professionals, and enable us to engage with our community in new ways. In exchange for our volunteer’s valuable contribution of time, we offer an opportunity to help provide lifelong learning experiences to thousands of children and families each year.
