KIDS ROOM UPKEEP ASSISTANT
Assist Kids Room staff with vital behind-the-scenes maintenance tasks. The Kids Room is the Maryland Science Center's space dedicated solely to our youngest guests, and we need help maintaining and repairing our much-loved, and much-used, hands-on exhibits.
High-school volunteers and small groups of volunteers (5-10 people) are welcome, although group opportunities may not always coincide with when a group is available. Volunteers looking for a one-time only opportunity are also welcome. Youth volunteer and groups should contact the Maryland Science Center's Volunteer Coordinator for further information.

- Ability to use simple power tools (drill, hand sander, etc.) is desired, but not necessary
