Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Volunteer with the Children's Science Center during the 2018-2019 school year!
The Children's Science Center will host a Family Science Night for families at elementary schools across Northern Virginia this school year! Join us for a fun, science-filled night while inspiring a love of learning and STEM-literacy in our local children.
Terrific opportunity for teens to fulfill volunteer hour requirements! Also a great opportunity for corporate groups to assist in their community! Volunteers MUST be 16 years of age or older and provide their own transportation. No need to be an Einstein (although we're open to that)!
** All volunteers must complete a Volunteer Profile on our VolunteerMatters database prior to serving with the Children's Science Center. http://childsci.org/get-involved/volunteer/
Volunteers will help engage and excite children in science and engineering learning and exploration through the use of educational, interactive, hands-on instruction. Volunteers will be expected to review a volunteer instruction packet and/or watch a video for additional preparation. Contact Volunteer@childsci.org for more information.
