Rotunda Assistants - Volunteers in the Rotunda are responsible for facilitating one of our lab extensions. Lab extensions are short demonstrations or experiments related to the science of the week. Rotunda volunteers must be comfortable with learning new things, engaging people and initiating interactions with guests, and feel comfortable sharing science concepts and knowledge.
Interested volunteers must complete our application process in order to volunteer in this role. The volunteer coordinator will be in touch about next steps in the process.
Transforming communities by inspiring and equipping future inventors, entrepreneurs and visionaries
The Cade Museum for Creativity & Invention is named for Dr. James Robert Cade, a professor of renal (kidney) medicine at the University of Florida and the lead inventor of the sports drink Gatorade. In 2004, Dr. Cade and his family established the Cade Museum Foundation to design and build a museum in Gainesville. The Cade Museum, which opened to the public on May 19th, 2018, reflects Dr. Cade's outlandish spirit, zest for life and new ideas and his constant, genuine interest in helping, motivating and encouraging people of all ages and experience.
