On Friday, May 2, 2014, the University of Michigan-Flint’s Super Science Friday will bring over six hundred of our area’s 7th and 8th grade students to our campus for a day of interactive science-based workshops taught by faculty and staff. The event’s purpose is two-fold: foster student curiosity and sense of discovery, as well as increase their awareness of the post-secondary opportunities that we provide here at the university.
That day, university faculty will present workshops in engineering, chemistry, biology, fine arts, health sciences, information systems and alternative energy in which participants will be engaged in hands-on experiments or group experiences that require them to apply problem solving strategies to a project. In addition, time will be set aside for a short tour of the campus with attributes of our educational programs and campus being highlighted.
In order to make this day a success, we need our help! Adult Volunteers are needed to serve in a variety of capacities from working at our registration table, taking pictures, showing students a UM-Flint video available online, manning student volunteer check-in process, setting up tables/chairs in Rec Center, and coordinating arrivals of busses. Volunteers will be provided event tee-shirts and are invited to join us for continental breakfast in the UCEN and lunch at the Rec Center once the workshop sessions have concluded.
Please submit the form below if you are interested in volunteering for the event. Please note that a background check will be completed on all volunteers before the event takes place.
