On November 17, 2017AZStemAdventure will again welcome more than 1,000 fourth- through eighth-grade students from across Southern Arizona. Exhibits and demonstrations for these children will include laboratories to launches, and from animal observations to feats of engineering. They will explore their paths to the future! Arizona STEM Adventure continues its successful partnership with Pima Community College, SARSEF, Raytheon, IBM, and much more. 
In order to make this event possible and to help excite students about STEM fields, we need more than 250 volunteers.  Volunteer opportunities on November 17, 2017, at Northwest Campus will consist of the following: 
  • Pre-event (7:00am-12:30pm) Set-up, Parking lot attendant, lunch set-up.  Volunteer duties will consist of assisting with setting up the parking lot as needed, providing traffic directions, working traffic flow, assisting exhibitors with pre-event setup, transporting/organizing student lunches.
  • Event (8:00am- 1:30pm)  Student chaperone.  Volunteer duties will consist of assisting with navigating the campus and event with the 4th-8th graders.  You must be familiar with all areas of the Northwest Campus and enjoy working with school children.  
  • Event (8:00am-1:30pm) Exhibitor assistance. Volunteers will assist exhibitors with their activities.  You would also be responsible to keep track of time for the activities to ensure that maximum numbers of students can experience each exhibitor’s activity.  Have some STEM knowledge may be helpful.   
  • Event (8:00am-1:30pm) General Volunteer.  Volunteers in this area will be flexible and able to assist with all areas of the event – student chaperon, exhibitor assistance, event area coordination, etc.  This is a good option if you are flexible and do not have a preference over any of the categories.

(Volunteers are required to participate the entire shift they sign up for.  Credit will not be given for partial shifts.  As volunteers begin to apply, and positions become filled, options to volunteer may become limited.  Options are based on a first come first serve basis.  We reserve the right to move volunteers into a different volunteer position if needed.)

All volunteers must attend a volunteer training on Friday, November 3, 2017, @ Northwest Campus in G105 either from9am-10:30 am or 3:00pm-4:30 pm.  At that time volunteers will receive a t-shirt, volunteer supplies, and volunteer responsibilities.  If for some reason volunteer candidates cannot attend the MANDATORY training, they must contact Tiffany Hastings-Kibler, Northwest Campus Student Life Coordinator at thastings@pima.eduimmediately to determine their volunteer status.
