Welcome, all volunteers!

We at SARSEF are always in need of volunteers to assist in our programming, expand our reach to schools, and host high quality events. To inquire about current volunteer needs, please email our Volunteer Manager, Danniey Wright. 

Interested in volunteering for the SARSEF Fair Week, March 10-14, 2020? Click Here!

What if someday you could say you were partially responsible for a medical breakthrough that cures a dreaded disease? What if you read about a future Nobel Laureate, and can remember back when he or she was eight years old and studying bugs in the back yard?

As a volunteer, you may experience this!


Without volunteers, the SARSEF Science and Engineering Fair, the Arizona STEM Adventure, Racing the Sun Race Day, and other SARSEF events would not be possible.

These events are fun, and it is rewarding to see so many schoolchildren become excited about science and technology. These youngsters are our future — and with your help we may be able to keep many of them interested in important careers involving math, science engineering and technology!

We need volunteers to work a variety of events throughout the year. See where your interests lie and your talents best fit. Click on the tabs for more information.
