Please accept our invitation to support quality science programs for children, college students, adults and the general public. If you have any questions, please call us at 218.477.2904, or email email@example.com.

The purpose of volunteers is to support the Science Center/Planetarium staff in offering science education opportunities to people of all ages. There are volunteer opportunities in all areas, within personal time schedules, and with no age limitations. Through an application and interview process, volunteers are placed in work areas based on their individual interests, skills, and talents.
The Science Center also offers internships and independent study experiences for college credit. The Center demonstrates its appreciation for volunteers through picnics, potlucks, and an annual recognition dinners.
Volunteers may work in one or more of the following program areas:
Anyone interested in our programs can volunteer. Volunteers represent a cross section of the area's population. They are youth, senior citizens, working people, single parents, couples, and families.

You may also pick up an application at the office on campus, Hagen Hall 107B. After receiving your application, we will call you to arrange an interview.

The benefits of volunteering are endless. Some of the rewards include:
An orientation session acquaints volunteers with the Science Center/Planetarium staff and facilities. Volunteers gain practical training through workshops and on-the-job experience. Volunteers also receive specific instruction for the area in which they volunteer.
As you explore the roles of volunteers in each of our three program areas, you will see how important the work of volunteers is to the Regional Science Center and Planetarium. Each of the programs described in the three program areas could not be offered without the participation of our volunteers.
