Current Volunteer Information

Welcome to our volunteer program! We are thrilled to have you as a member of our volunteer team. We hope that your service with the Center will be a rewarding experience.

Time is a valuable gift and we are grateful that you are willing to share yours with us. Without you and the hundreds of dedicated volunteers to date, we couldn’t provide programming or many essential activities that help us to fulfill our mission. Thank you for helping us inspire the next generation to love STEM learning.
