SOUTHFIELD — So what are you doing Monday, Jan. 26? How would you like to donate half a day to help build interest in science, engineering and technology among Michigan’s youth?
The Michigan Science Center will be bringing its dynamic, hands-on learning experience, Sciencepalooza, to the Michigan Regional Future City Competition Monday, Jan. 26 at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi.
While Future City presenting students are meeting with judges, non-presenting students will be engaged in Sciencepalooza, a discovery of various science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) concepts.
Volunteers are critical to the success of Sciencepalooza. Students will be rotated through a series of interactive, hands-on activities. Each volunteer will facilitate one station activity for approximately one hour. Volunteers will guide students through the activity and explain science concepts. Each station will be provided with activity directions and a MiSci Educator will be available to provide additional support.
Volunteers should plan on arriving at 8 a.m. for a continental breakfast. Training will begin at 8:15 a.m. The program will start at 9 a.m. with a 45-minute group demonstration presentation. The students will then break into groups and visit the hands-on stations from 9:45 to 11 a.m., when volunteers will guide students through the activities.
If you would like additional information or would like to volunteer, contact Candice Russ at firstname.lastname@example.org or (248) 353-0735, ext. 148.
