Love science, engineering, and technology?
Consider volunteering with Science is Elementary and share your enthusiasm with underprivileged kids.
Science is Elementary seeks to effect systemic change in elementary science education. In order for students to have individualized attention and establish mentor relationships we need STEM professionals to volunteer with us. It's a minimal time commitment - 2 hours a month throughout the school year. You will work in the same classroom each month so that you can build a relationship with the students. You'll learn, you'll experience joy, and you'll make a difference in the lives of some amazing kids.
Volunteers work with small groups of students along with a lead educator. Science is Elementary provides all lesson plans, materials, and training.
