As we begin the new year, it is time to start creating new memories and achieving new goals to make 2024 our year. As a second-year Public Ally, I continue working at SARSEF as well as with other Allies volunteering to bring the community of Tucson together. Volunteer opportunities are amazing because I get to know other people of all ages who are also working to build a stronger community and are passionate about cultivating impactful relationships.
Coming to SARSEF, I was so excited to see all the amazing volunteer opportunities available to work with students of all ages. SARSEF has so many amazing programs that allow us to support and applaud student work. People come from a diversity of communities to volunteer their time and encourage students to be believers in their own work.
In 2024, SARSEF will have many volunteer and judging opportunities for you to consider. Are you ready to make a difference? Below you’ll find a listing of many of these great opportunities:
Beyond the SARSEF Regional Science and Engineering Fair
Arizona Junior Science and Humanities Symposium
We are seeking judges for the Arizona Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (JSHS) at Arizona Western College in Yuma, Arizona on Saturday, February 17. JSHS Judges will attend a virtual training in February then attend JSHS 7:30AM – 1:00PM to judge oral presenters in the subject category most aligned with your specialty.
Racing the Sun
We are seeking event volunteers for Racing the Sun’s Test Day and Race Day! Help make these events special for high school students as they prepare to race solar-powered go-karts they have spent the school year designing and building as a team.
- Racing the Sun Test Day, Saturday, April 6th: 9AM-3PM
- Racing the Sun Race Day, Saturday, April 27th: 9AM-3PM
While a background or passion for engineering is encouraged in Racing the Sun volunteers, there are opportunities for everyone to get involved! Both events will take place at Musselman Honda Circuit.
