Bus Greeter: Busloads of fun!
9 people are interested
We NEED Bus Greeters during the school year (October-June)! Boy, do we need 'em. Please help!
Help the thousands of school children who visit the Maryland Science Center have the best field trip ever! Bus Greeters serve a vital function by boarding arriving buses to inform students, teachers, and chaperones of the Maryland Science Center’s guidelines, provide a brief overview of exhibits, and assist teachers/chaperones with the check-in process. A bus that's been well greeted translates into students and chaperones who are more informed and polite when inside the museum.
How about you and a couple friends c'mon over to the Science Center and become our bus-greeting team!
