Volunteer Opportunity - Visitor and School Engagement Volunteer

Volunteer Opportunity Details:

Last updated on March 26, 2014

Volunteers with the Visitor and School Engagement Department at the Great Lakes Science Center are trained to do the following tasks engaging the visitors in the museum’s galleries. These tasks are done in a rotation during the volunteer’s shift. Volunteers are required to work a minimum of one 4 hour shift per week for 3 month.
Group Greeting
Organized, friendly group greeters are essential to school group visits. Assisting students into the building, distributing wristbands, assisting teachers and giving directions ensure a seamless, comfortable visit for all age groups.
Exhibit Interpreter
Friendly, outgoing exhibit interpreters are an important part of the visitor experience in all the museum galleries like Bio Med Tech, NASA, Science Phenomena and the WM. G. Mather. Interacting with visitors of all ages, enhancing their understanding of concepts, and having fun, are what keep our visitors coming back. Also learn to use the Bridge of Fire, one of our signature exhibits, as a way to charge up our audience!
Polymer Fun House
The Polymer Fun House is looking for fun, patient, outgoing attendants. This high-energy play area is designed for children under age 7, with a ball pond, bounce house, dress up area, and more!
Mobile Explorers
Show off your fun side to visitors with our themed cart activities. Choose a cart activity that suits your style (NASA, DNA, Bubbles, Robotics, Light, Cryogenics, and many more). Mobile Explorers are a great way to get visitors excited about what they will see on the museum floors.
Special Exhibition Interpreter
Each season brings to the Science Center new and exciting traveling exhibitions. Use your expertise and passion to enhance the experience for each of our visitors. Interact with visitors within the exhibition, answer questions and conduct hands-on activities. The current traveling exhibition is “Lost Egypt” June 1, 2013, “Titanic, The Artifact Exhibition” will open.
