Sci-Tech Center of NNY is a playground for the mind of all ages! We are the only hands-on museum in Northern NY and we are open year round. We are 100% run by volunteers and we need talented people like you to join our cause. You don’t need a background in science! We are looking for generous people who are willing to share their talents with us. Here are some areas of need:

  • Store management
  • Fundraising
  • Research & writing
  • STEM workshop facilitation
  • Artistry & carpentry
  • Construction & maintenance

If you can offer something that you think could benefit the museum and it is not on the list, we still want to hear from you! We offer flexible scheduling and we are open to people who want to gain experience in these areas.

Please contact Steve at scitech@scitechcenter.org or call 315-788-1340. You can also visit the museum on Fridays and Saturdays from 10am-4pm or anytime on our website www.scitechcenter.org
