Volunteer Opportunities: January 2016

In addition to the Society for Science & the Public’s three prestigious science education competitions, we also have many Affiliated Fairs throughout the country and the world. The Society wants to offer a chance for our members, alumni, and others to give back through volunteering or judging at local science fairs.

The Society will highlight several volunteer opportunities each month at our affiliated domestic fairs. Use the Society’s Find-a-Fair feature to find a Society Affiliated Fair in your area, broken down by country and state.

Sign up to volunteer at Intel ISEF 2016 in Phoenix, Arizona from May 8-13. The Society seeks volunteers to serve as judges, interpreters, and to provide general support.

Below are opportunities to volunteer at domestic science fairs in the month of January:
