The Crown Family PlayLab starts with a child's innate curiosity, adds real artifacts and specimens, and encourages young explorers to discover the wonders of nature and learn about diverse cultures. Volunteers will help children and families in the PlayLab discover the wonders of nature, connect to other cultures, and learn to think like a scientist. Assignments include interacting with children, facilitating learning expereiences, answering questions and assisting visitors. Ideal applicants have a strong interest in natural science, world cultures, and various art mediums as well as early childhood education. Standing, kneeling, and crouching will be required so energetic candidates are preferred.

Volunteers are asked to commit to 2 shifts a month on Monday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. Available shifts are 9:30am-12:45pm or 12:45pm-4:00pm.
