Each year the Natural History Museum of Utah hosts over 45,000 elementary aged children. We need volunteers to help engage these students in hands-on activities that spark a curiosity in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). As a STEM Lab Facilitator volunteer, you will be able to play a part in igniting a young child's life-long passion for science. You'll gain valuable experience working with children and with large groups, and get specialized training to learn to facilitate inquiry- and problem-based learning a meaningful way.
STEM Lab Facilitator volunteers will work with staff to facilitate open-ended, hands-on activities and creative projects in one of the Museum’s learning labs. They will create an engaging environment where field trip students can explore puzzling problems and design imaginative solutions. Volunteers will prepare and organize supplies and materials needed, and assist in program development and evaluation.
