----- WHAT WE DO (AND DON'T DO) -----

Science and Us is a youth-led nonprofit helping middle and high school students do 2 things:

1) Communicate STEM (science, technology, engineering, math)
2) Discover careers connecting STEM and the public (examples: creating videos and art about STEM, educating visitors at science museums and zoos, developing research-backed laws, and reporting about STEM in the news)

We do not directly encourage students to learn or pursue STEM. We believe that understanding STEM is essential to making informed decisions, since it impacts all of us, but celebrate the reality that not everyone needs (or wants) to be a scientist.

We help youth find a place and appreciation for STEM in their lives, whatever their interests are.

----- WHO WE'RE LOOKING FOR -----

The 3 most important qualities in potential team members are:

1) Genuine motivation to help others! If you’re looking for something easy to add to your resume or help you get into college, this ain’t it, chief.

2) Consistent time commitment and communication! This means dedicating at least 3 hours a week and being responsive to messages in our team Slack workspace.

3) Willingness to learn and improve!

High school and college students from around the world are welcome to apply.
