Event Volunteers

The Depot also offers important networking opportunities for instructor volunteers. Teacher volunteers staff the Depot Open Houses, which occur multiple times throughout the year. These and other occasions allow science and biotech teachers to learn about each others’ successes and challenges, and to gather ideas for effective science instruction.

Before teachers receive their needed supplies, everyone at an Open House assists with organizations and setup. This may include:

  • Working the registration or check-out tables

  • Moving materials out to the dispersement area

  • Helping educators who are new to the depot

  • Sorting equipment and supplies

  • Re-stocking equipment and supplies

  • Clean-up
