Help make MakerFest happen, become a volunteer! Free admission to MakerFest and customized screen-printed T-shirt included. Volunteer orientation will be Thursday, Sept. 12th at 6pm at ScienceWorks.
No experience required as training is open to all volunteers! It's a great way for youth ages 14 and up to log community service hours, and an excellent opportunity for area businesses to give back to their community by organizing a group of employees to serve. We are looking for 75 volunteers so sign up today!
STORAGE OF PERSONAL BELONGINGSYou may leave coats, umbrellas and other outerwear in the Breakroom. We strongly recommend you do not leave anything of value in the Breakroom. ScienceWorks is not responsible for personal belongings left in the Breakroom. If you prefer, you may leave personal items in your vehicle.
PHONESPersonal phones may be carried while you are working, but should not be used except on your break.
UNIFORMS AND PERSONAL APPEARANCEAll volunteers are required to wear a standard volunteer uniform (usually a special t-shirt and closed-toed shoes) during volunteer duties for MakerFest. Uniforms allow our guests to readily identify our volunteer team. High standards for personal grooming are just as important to our customer service efforts as job competence and everyday courtesy.
The MakerFest volunteer uniform is as follows:MakerFest t-shirt (provided for you at no charge)Khaki, navy or black pants, shorts or jeansComfortable, supportive, closed-toed shoesMakerFest volunteer badge (provided for you at no charge)Clothing without rips, tears, stains or overly worn appearance.
If you you have questions about the appropriateness of your outfit, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator. Volunteers who come without the proper clothing and footwear will be asked to return home and change.
