This is a great opportunity to develop your customer service and communication skills, while at the same time learning a bit more about science. Past volunteers have spoken of how much the placement helped them to grow their confidence, and in turn has developed their leadership skills. Volunteering at Science World gives you the chance to grow your workplace skills in a nurturing and supportive environment.

 

Availability Commitment:

We require our talented work experience volunteers to commit to a minimum of 80 hours over the course of their 15-day placement period. For the most part, you can choose the ten days you can work out of the 15-day period, as we understand that flexibility is important to achieve work/life/school balance! This commitment means that some days of school (a minimum of four) must be missed for placements that occur outside of school break periods.

 

Key Responsibilities:

• Provide our customers with friendly, fun, awesome, wow, and memorable experience.

• Positively influence attitudes towards science, technology, and creative thinking by performing gallery demonstrations, and explaining exhibits.

• Ensure a safe, clean, secure environment for our customers.

• Assist with security measures and lost child processes.
