DIRT (Desert Innovation Research and Technology) is located in Las Vegas NV and works to support STEM and trades through integrated, innovative approaches to outreach and education.

We are currently working on building educational content for our site as well as an upcoming project focused on teaching community members about ecosystems and their ever changing components.


DIRT is seeking volunteers for the following:

  1. Adding STEM related content to our site ( you will not be responsible for publishing to website- just writing content). We will provide topics and areas we need expanded. Some creative autonomy will be allowed for subject matter for topics.
  2. Filling out animal and plant facts on a spreadsheet that will become curriculum for upcoming projects.

You may choose to do one or both, and we may have multiple people adding to the content pool.

Desired background or qualifications :

  1. Background in STEM or Biology schooling, profession or experience
  2. Able to understand basic concepts of ecological and biological terms (habitat types, behaviors, seasonal activity)
  3. Able to vet and navigate valid information sources online- (use of government agency websites or sussing out community sourced information vs actual scientific facts)
  4. Ability to write scientific content geared towards children and non-science community
  5. Ability to use emails, Word programs, Google docs and other platforms for completing tasks

Work will be conducted at your own pace, but ability to complete tasks in a reasonable and timely manner will be expected.

If you are interested, please contact Sherri Mantanona at info@dirtnv.org with your information.

We will be happy to sign off on any credit hours for time volunteering if you are doing this as a requirement for school or work programs.

Please check out our website and social media platforms to see more about who we are and our mission.
