BEAMS, Becoming Enthusiastic About Math and Science, JLab's long-running, math and science enrichment program for middle school students will start back up on September 13, 2007. You, the JLab staff, are critical to the success of all of JLab's science education programs, especially BEAMS. Our BEAMS volunteers have been exposing young students to the applications, importance, and excitement of mathematics and scientific principles for sixteen years! Students get to learn about you and your job and you get to have fun working with lots of smiling faces - everybody wins!
We'd love to have you join us this year, for the first time, the hundredth time, or for the first time in a long time!
What do BEAMS volunteers do? BEAMS volunteers either lead or assist with planned activities for the students. Each activity lasts for about 75 minutes - that's 75 minutes of fun and excitement!
Want to help, but not sure how? That's what we're here for!
We will have a BEAMS Volunteer Fair on Thursday, August 30, from 11:00 am, to 2:30 pm. All of the different activities will be on display in the BEAMS classrooms (VARC 72) - just for YOU! Oh yeah, we'll have cookies, candy, drinks, and presents!!
We are looking forward to another successful year of BEAMS and hope we can count on you to help us make it just that!
Science Education Staff,
Christine, Steve, Lisa, Dave, LaChelle, and Jan
