Volunteer Opportunities at iSPACE,The STEM Learning Place
Change lives, change your outlook, make an impact by helping others explore! STEM is exciting and we invite you to be part of our dynamic volunteer team.
iSPACE, the STEM Learning Place, makes learning exciting. We provide engaging Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) programs to schools, youth organizations, educators, and community groups to help build awareness of the importance of STEM knowledge and STEM-related careers. Our innovative programs empower participants to engage in active, hands-on problem solving and team-based projects exploring robotics, rocketry, and more. This helps participants to build the skills and confidence they’ll need in the future as they join the workforce with careers in manufacturing, technology, research, health care, and other STEM-related fields.
