Our mission is to bring citizen scientists into classrooms around San Diego and the globe. Sign up as an extraordinary scientist or engineer (or technologist!) and we will help you develop your very own in-classroom curriculum to bring your science to K-5 classrooms. Volunteer as much or as little as you would like. We need your expertise!

  • Please describe your relevant academic and professional qualifications.
  • If you can, please provide us with a copy of your CV or resume. We promise to keep this information confidential.
  • If you can, please provide us with a copy of a recent publication. We love science! We promise to actually read this and ask you about it.
  • Describe your occupation and your scientific expertise. Are you a scientist, engineer, mathematician, technologist, maker, hacker, artist? What is your favorite kind of science, engineering, or technology to work with?
  • Do you have any ideas for the types of hands-on activities that you would like to create or to participate in? We are fueled by new ideas on how to educate. Please share yours!
  • How many hours of hands-on science with K-5 kids would you like to do in a month? (We won't hold you to it, but this helps us get an estimate of the total number of volunteer hours potentially available to us for long-term planning. Our longest single events are 6-8 hours in duration.)
