Educational Programs: Volunteers can help assist the Educational Program Coordinators with Birthday Parties every weekend, plus Field Study Trips and WOW on Wheels throughout the school year. Birthday Parties happen on Saturdays and Sundays at 10:30 am and 2:00 pm. Field Study Trips happen Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday and are generally in the mornings between 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. WOW on Wheels lessons happen Monday through Friday and are located all over the Central Valley, so chances are good that there will be an opportunity in your area.
Exhibits: Volunteers can assist visitors on the exhibit floor by answering questions about the museum and the hands-on exhibits, engage visitors directly with fun science activities, and help sustain a smoothly running exhibit floor. Volunteers can also work with museum staff to maintain and repair exhibits currently on the floor as well as work to create new exhibits.
Retail Services: Volunteers can help greet guests, assist with memberships, and maintain the WOW Science Store. Volunteers who are 18 years or older can be trained to use the register.
Outreach Events: Volunteers can work with museum staff to help increase the museum’s exposure with informational booths and exciting science demonstrations at different events and festivals across the Central Valley.
