January/February Volunteering

On Saturday, January 22, volunteers are needed for the Future City Competition for middle school students, who will come to the Curry Student Center to learn about engineering and construct "cities of the future"!

On February 5, volunteers are also needed for the Building Bridges Program for high school students, to help with set-up, check-in, and other items.

Please email to volunteer!

Building Bridges Volunteer Opportunity for 12/10

We are hosting approximately 115 high school students on Friday Dec. 10, 2010 for our Bi-Annual Building Bridges program once again. The program provides a full day of interactive sessions across each of the engineering disciplines for high school students.

We are looking for NEU student volunteers escort a specific group to a session on campus and then drop them off, or be willing to pick up a specific group from a session on campus and take them to the next activity on campus.

The three pick-up and/or drop-off times are as follows:


>>> Session A runs from 10:00am to 11:00am
>>> Session B runs from 11:15am to 12:15pm
>>> Session C runs from 1:45pm to 2:45pm

We also need at least 2-3 students to help with registration from 8:30am to 9:50am at the Cabral Center in the John D. O'Bryant African American Institute.

Please email to volunteer!

Welcome to the Center for STEM Education's K-12 Outreach Blog!

WHO WE ARE: The Center for STEM Education is a Northeastern center focused on increasing opportunities and awareness in the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) fields for students, especially those from backgrounds currently underrepresented in these careers. We work closely with our community to accomplish this goal, and have many volunteer opportunities both on campus and in the schools and communities in which we work.
VOLUNTEERING: Whether you are passionate about enhancing math and science education for K-12 students, want to get more involved in your community, or just want to fulfill some required volunteer hours, you've come to the right place! Read about our upcoming volunteer opportunities in the blog below, and then click on the link for the event in the right-hand column to register. We offer both ongoing and one-day volunteer opportunities, and new events are being added all of the time. We encourage you to also use this blog to discuss your current service experiences with other students at NU!
