ECHO Scientist

ECHO inspires and engages families in the joy of scientific discovery, wonder of nature, and care of Lake Champlain. We are seeking enthusiastic, dedicated volunteers to join us in our Education department, working with the public of all ages to learn about science, nature, and the Lake Champlain Basin.

Here are some examples of what Education volunteers do at ECHO:

Guide guests through engineering activities

Share information with guests about the species in our Champlain Sea Tank

Guide kids in exploring the wonders of moose and bears

Teach kids to program miniature robots in our Maker Space

Participate in delivering seasonal activities designed to enrich science learning in our community (past activities have included a solar eclipse viewing party, snowball fling, and more!)

We are seeking volunteers with a passion for ECHO's mission and the ability to make a three-month commitment of one, four-hour shift per week. More information can be found at
