Volunteers Sought to Help with Engineering/STEM Career Days

Volunteers Sought to Help with Engineering/STEM Career Days on Feb. 23 & 24

Jefferson Lab will be participating once again in the Engineering/STEM Career Days on Thursday, February 23 and Friday, February 24, 2017, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., at Newport News Shipbuilding.

Science Education is seeking engineers, scientists and technicians who are willing to talk to high school students about their careers.  The day is formatted as such: The high school students will rotate through four preassigned tables, each staffed by one of our JLab volunteers.  For each 15 minute rotation, our staff will talk about their careers, backgrounds, etc.  Upon completion of the final rotation, students will stay at that table to participate in a design challenge (which Science Education will provide). Then event will conclude with lunch!

Volunteers may sign up for one day or for both days. A meeting will be provided for volunteers interested in discussing the event format and the design challenge activity. Directions and parking information will be provided.

Individuals interested in volunteering are asked to notify Brita Hampton, Science Education, by Wednesday, January 25. If you are interested in volunteering or have questions, please contact Brita at hampton@jlab.org.
