Do you have a desire to learn and teach others about science, technology, engineering, art or math? If so, then The Tech might be the perfect place for you to volunteer! The Tech Interactive is home to one-of-a-kind learning experiences, and our volunteers help people of all ages discover their inner innovator and problem solver.. The Tech serves a diverse population, including international visitors, local communities, and school groups on field trips.

You don't have to be an experienced instructor or engineer to succeed as a volunteer here. You just need enthusiasm for innovation, and a willingness to share that enthusiasm with our guests. We provide an orientation, hands-on training and mentorship to ensure your success. If you are 18 or older and enjoy connecting with people; we know you'll love our close-knit community and helping inspire the next generation of problem solvers!.

Trying to volunteer around a busy schedule? We have excellent opportunities for you.

We are always looking for volunteers to help with our evening events. You select your event shifts based on your availability, and all we ask is two evening events per month.

Exhibit Interpreter Role:

Be a part of an enthusiastic team of volunteers and staff who work with our visitors to make their experience meaningful and memorable. Facilitate interactive exhibits like Social Robots or fun building activities in The Tech Studio; demonstrate scientific and technological advances in healthcare, alternative energy, and artistic expression; and encourage our visitors to contemplate, create and innovate. Regular (weekly or biweekly) shifts, from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. or 12:30 to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
