Connecting with visitors is what the Adler does best! Thanks to our dedicated and passionate Floor Programs Facilitator volunteers, we are able to make science come alive for many of our museum guests. If you enjoy sharing the wonder and excitement of space with others, then we invite you to be part of our innovative and inspiring team of volunteers.

Floor Programs Facilitators work with our hands-on educational activities and interact with visitors as part of our front-line education team on the museum floor. Floor Program Facilitators present short, informal lessons relating to space science and exhibit content to families, school groups, and adult visitors. These lessons range in content and encourage guests to take a more in-depth exploration of Adler’s content and collection. This is a great opportunity for those who enjoy learning and teaching space science. Not only will you gain experience as a facilitator, but you will also explore and dissect a variety of science concepts.

As a Floor Programs Facilitator, your unique interactions with our visitors will help build a better understanding of complex astronomy concepts as well as spark conversations about the universe. As a Weekend Floor Programs Facilitator, you will be assigned to volunteer from 11am- 3pm on the same day every other week.
