Love science, engineering, and technology?
Consider volunteering with Science is Elementary and share your enthusiasm with underprivileged kids.
Science is Elementary (SiE) is looking for volunteers with a STEM background to lead small group experiments so that students get more individualized attention and a chance to establish mentor relationships. 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.
Here is what our volunteers are saying:
“It is very fulfilling that with very little I could be making a real impact in their lives.” - Javier
“If I can inspire a few children to be excited about science, even if just for a day, that's awesome.” - Carmen
“I enjoy doing the experiments as much as the kids do!” - Subash
