Whether you want volunteer hours, would like to share your research with the world, or just love science, the Office of Science Outreach has a way for you to get involved!
Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities
We need volunteers year-round for virtual, on-campus, and school events! Penn State students, student groups, labs, and employees can help us run events, community members in STEM fields can serve as speakers, and local STEM-oriented companies can table at some of our events. If you are interested in volunteering for any of the programs we run, consider signing up for our volunteer newsletter! We'll send you a monthly menu of outreach events and ways to be involved!
Events and programs we are currently recruiting volunteers for are listed below.
VIRTUAL SCIENCE FESTIVAL
Our Virtual Science Festival was created to provide free virtual resources featuring Penn State student organizations, community groups, research labs, and local STEM companies. This online resource serves as a repository of fun STEM videos, engaging DIY science activities, and other educational resources for parents, teachers, and kids alike. New content will continue to be added! If you have material to share, please contact Caitlin Teti at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
BELLEFONTE YOUTH CENTER- Run a Science Workshop!
We have recently cultivated a relationship with the Bellefonte Youth Center run by the Youth Service Bureau. Our first workshops were held in the Fall of 2019, with more expected in the future. If you, your lab, student group, or other STEM-related organization would like to host an hour-long evening workshop with BYC students, contact Tim Gleason at email@example.com. Dates and times are somewhat flexible!
