Palouse Discovery Science Center

Next date is Thursday, April 22nd, 2021 from 4:55pm to 6:00pm (PT)


Opportunity Description: Student volunteers will assist with Palouse Discovery Science Center to help keep things clean and set up for kids to come take classes.

Museum-keeping at Palouse Discovery Science Center- PDSC is more than a museum, they are a community hub for interactive science learning. In addition to the exhibit hall, they offer after school classes, camps and exciting programs for children and families throughout the region. This spring, they are in need of a few extra hands to help keep the facility and grounds in tip-top shape for the curious kiddos. Duties will depend on the activities of the week but will likely consist of a combination of indoor/outdoor tidying and maintenance.  Tasks may include raking, weeding, wiping surfaces, watering plants, cleaning and organizing toys and education materials and helping prepare crafts and take-home kits.

Transportation will NOT be provided. Please meet at  Palouse Discovery Science Center 5 minutes earlier than the start time at 4:55 to meet your Project Leader. 

Requirements: Service hours are allocated based on the amount of direct service participation and do not include meeting and travel time. Students can expect to receive approximately 1 hour of service. Please dress appropriately for the possibility of working outdoors or indoors, warm clothing and closed-toed shoes. Masks must be worn at all times.
