About

Creativity Lab Assistant - Creativity Lab Assistants act as a set of helping hands to the education team in the Creativity Lab, the Cade Museum’s lab where science, art, and history intersect. These volunteers enjoy interacting with people and showing them what there is to do in the Creativity Lab. Volunteers must feel comfortable interacting with the public and sharing the activities and experiments in the Creativity Lab as well as the science concepts behind them.

Fab Lab Assistant - Fab Lab Assistants act as a set of helping hands to the education team in the Fab Lab, the Cade Museum’s technology and engineering lab. These volunteers enjoy interacting with people and showing them what there is to do in the Fab Lab, and are often responsible for guiding guests through a specified activity. Volunteers must feel comfortable interacting with the public and sharing the activities in the Fab Lab.

Idea Atelier - Idea Atelier volunteers welcome guests into the Idea Atelier in the Petty Family Gallery, the Cade Museum’s reflective and engaging gallery space. Volunteers in the Idea Atelier may suggest books, puzzles, or activities for guests and guide them through activities.

Rotunda Assistants - Volunteers in the Rotunda are responsible for facilitating one of our lab extensions. Lab extensions are short demonstrations or experiments related to the science of the week. Rotunda volunteers must be comfortable with learning new things, engaging people and initiating interactions with guests, and feel comfortable sharing science concepts and knowledge.

Prep Assistants - Prep assistants are volunteers who love to help, but perhaps are not keen on interacting with the public. These volunteers might be tasked with straightening, correlating, or prefabbing small pieces for field trips. From sharpening pencils (literally!) to checking markers for duds, or cleaning out debris from bins, prep assistant volunteers provide invaluable "behind the scenes" help for Cade programs.

Administrative/Marketing - Administrative and marketing volunteer positions are occasionally available, depending on current Cade Museum projects and goals.
