The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Explore the engineering design process with Powerhouse Science Center’s brand new Design Lab workshop! Work with visitors on
Work with museum visitors by Mapping-out, building, and testing prototype solutions to given design challenges. Volunteers have FUN engaging families with the engineering and innovation process, and learning how there’s no single "right" answer in engineering.
We need volunteers daily to power this new design space. You will be our "guides on the side," helping our visitors as they solve engineering challenges ranging from building bridges and buildings, testing out aerodynamics, constructing electrical circuits, and even coding! Do not worry if you are not an engineering expert, just be willing to smile, assist and learn along with visitors!
