Mission Statement

ScienceWorks’ Volunteer Program offers the structure and foundation for volunteers and interns to contribute to the mission of ScienceWorks (To be a champion of science--inspiring curiosity, wonder, and exploration through engaging and interactive experiences). Our volunteers compliment, assist, and partner with the core paid museum staff in practically every facet of operation. We recognize that volunteers provide ScienceWorks with resources of experience and talent which are unique and necessary. We strongly value this contribution , and hope to offer each volunteer a satisfying, productive, and rewarding experience.

Description

ScienceWorks Hands-on Museum is an interactive science museum located in Ashland, Oregon, serving visitors of all ages throughout Southern Oregon and Northern California. Founded in 2002 as a private response to a crisis in public science education, ScienceWorks is committed to inspiring wonder and stimulating creative exploration through fun interactive science.

In 2001, through a cooperative arrangement with the Kirlin Charitable Foundation and Southern Oregon University, ScienceWorks began leasing the 26,000 square foot building previously occupied by the Pacific Northwest Museum of Natural History. ScienceWorks brought life and vitality back into the long-closed structure, giving the building a fun and exciting new look. Hundreds of volunteers retrofitted the building, built exhibits and began implementation of the
strategic plan. Since opening in 2002, ScienceWorks has served nearly one million visitors and 100,000 K-12 students throughout Southern Oregon and Northern California, with 2,000 member households across the region.
