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 San Antonio. 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.

As a City Coordinator volunteer, this role is best described as a project manager. You will be expected to:

  • Onboard/Offboard volunteers
  • Be familiar with the job descriptions of your team members and have an overview of their responsibilities
  • Communicate your progress with central
  • Keep track of your budget and finances
  • Arrange meetings with your team
  • Assign tasks
  • Follow up to ensure tasks are being completed
  • Debrief your team and evaluate your events

We are looking to fill this position in the San Antonio area only.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to create community-based connections between people and science that would not exist otherwise. We want to do this regardless of the background of our volunteers or the communities that we engage with.

Description

Scientists, Inc. is a nonprofit dedicated to science outreach. We connect with our non-specialist audience through events such as our national annual taste of science festival, a week long program dedicated to adults. Every year, our festival runs simultaneously in multiple cities across the US. In 2019 we reached 16 city chapters lead by volunteers, featuring scientists, researchers, engineers and artists from their local institutions.

We also record the 2Scientists podcast sharing the stories of scientists and their experiences in research to humanize the people who do the work.

We are 100% volunteer run. A group of diverse individuals brought together through our love for science, so we dedicate our time to share research and the scientific process with our communities.
