Volunteers are an important part of Science 101and
Science 101 is a non-credit, barrier free Science community outreach program offered to
adult residents of Vancouver's Downtown Eastside and other inner-city communities. Annually
from May to August, Science 101 offers a variety of lectures, tutorials, and field trips to
introduce a selection of topics in order to inspire a love of science and education.
Volunteers are an important part of Science 101 and are given a variety of
responsibilities both inside and outside the classroom such as:
Engaging adult students through one-on-one personal and scientific discussions,
Confidence building and participating in small group activities,
Helping students with project conceptualization, organization, and preparation, etc.
Be a graduate student or senior undergraduate student in the Faculty of Science.
Attend at least one of the 3-5 activities per week, and must commit for 4 months from
May to August.
Experience working with diverse adult populations is an asset.
