Science Day – Call for Volunteers!: April 9th 10am-3pm

This event is a day when we invite kids (primarily ages 12-­16) to campus to visit grad students & post-­docs in their labs and learn about what real scientists do every day. Volunteers from all different departments put together stations with activities or experiments that are kid friendly and educational.

The success of this event depends on you! This is a great opportunity for students or post-­docs to get experience in community outreach and mentoring! You do not need to be associated with GWISE to participate in this event. We’d love to see a wide variety of departments represented to give the kids a taste of all that science has to offer. You can sign up to lead your own station, or collaborate with others in your field of expertise.

If you think you might be interested in volunteering for Science Day, please take a moment to fill out this survey: http://goo.gl/forms/BZzKNhlSKq

For station ideas, alternative, kid-friendly lab space or any other questions or concerns please feel free to contact us at: gwise.dartmouth@gmail.com

We will be contacting everyone who replies to the survey with more details soon!
