WE NEED BUS GREETERS! Boy, do we need you. Please help!
Help the thousands of school children who visit the Maryland Science Center have the best field trip ever! Bus Greeters board 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. This position isn't very glamorous, but it's very vital. A bus that's been well greeted translates into students and chaperones who are more informed and polite when inside the museum.+
