ORGANIZATION: Discovery Cube Orange County

  • 55 people are interested

Discovery Cube offers hands-on science education that delights, challenges, and encourages kids. Discovery Cube has made a positive difference in thousands of lives for 35 years. Our organization achieves this goal through four core initiatives: STEM proficiency, early childhood education, healthy living, and environmental stewardship. These future-forward initiatives inspire educators, their students, and all of us committed to learning for life.

Our original center in Orange County, as well as our newer Los Angeles campus, gives those seeking immersive, interactive science activities a way to jump into the learning fun. In addition to our campuses, educational outreach programs remain a major part of our mission. Bringing a host of experiences directly to learners is essential to achieving the organization’s core initiatives. It’s a mission that also includes empowering real-world applications by giving learners a chance to make a difference. This vision has made the Discovery Cube a prominent advocate for modern science education over the years. Spotlighting science as a solution and as a force for good is what Discovery Cube so successfully does.

Position:

Discovery Cube Orange County is seeking enthusiastic adult volunteers to support the operation of our newest exhibit, Sea Lab. Sea Lab Volunteers will engage with guests at our coastal tidepool touch tank and the shark and ray tank. Volunteers will provide instruction to guests on safely interacting with aquatic life in both tanks and will actively engage in conversation with guests on the natural history of invertebrates (such as sea stars, sea urchins and snails) as well as sharks and rays.

Responsibilities:

  • Engage guests of all ages by providing information about aquatic exhibits and the animal inhabitants
  • Encourage guests to safely and positively interact with aquatic animal life (including common intertidal animals as well as sharks and rays.)
  • Assist staff in maintaining a safe environment for animals, guests, staff and volunteers
  • Answer guest questions about Sea Lab and Discovery Cube OC
  • Provide excellent guest service
  • Assist staff with guiding guests efficiently through the exhibit space
