Help Organize taste of science Chicago - a SciFest for grown ups

Save to Favorites

Idealist.org

Recruiting Organization: Scientists, Inc.

Kids get plenty of science festivals - so we make something for adults, for them to play.


taste of science is an events series and annual festival dedicated to bringing scientists out of the lab, in from the field and away from their computers to meet with non-specialist audiences in their favorite places. We are a national organization with community roots. Those involved are hardworking, creative and passionate people dedicated to making science more accessible to everyone.

As a volunteer you would be working to connect your local community with the exciting and valuable research being carried out at institutions in Chicago. You would help to organize events to break down the notion that science is inaccessible and carried out in the ivory tower. We work to inform citizens who can then make better decisions, based on science, when it comes to their health, the economy and our environment.

We want to engage people where they enjoy going to hang out. This might be their favorite brewery, or a family friendly event at a park.

This is a great opportunity in which to learn and develop skills in science communication that include networking, web management, project management, and social media presence.

We are currently looking to fill various positions in Chicago. The roles include:

  • Speaker Liaison
  • Funding Manager
  • Event Coordinators
  • Social Media Manager
  • Publicity Managers
  • Web Manager

Briefly we'd be looking for folks to help us find event venues, connect with scientists, get involved in scheduling, seeking sponsorship and donations, and advertising our events to the local community.
