Science Carnival on the Parkway May 3 - Volunteers Needed

For the fourth year, we will be sponsoring a booth at the Science Carnival on the Parkway, the culminating event of the Philadelphia Science Festival. The Carnival is a highly visible outdoor event that provides opportunity for exchange between children, teens, families and local scientists/engineers! This all-day affair will take place Saturday May 3, 2014. Our goal is to provide family-oriented science entertainment with a hands-on activity or an interactive demonstration to get kids excited about engineering! This is a great outreach opportunity to interact with kids and teens of all ages.

We are looking for participants to volunteer and join us as a society or as individuals at our booth. If participating as a society, we can incorporate signage that includes the name of your society. Volunteers can either be there all day or take a specific time slot when they are available. If you don’t wish to participate as a society, please make this information available to your members who may want to assist for part of the day or have suggestions or activities they would like to contribute.

Our booth will be called "What Do Engineers Do?" The Carnival and the Science Festival's purpose is to offer something for everyone in hopes of sparking interest and involvement in the sciences so we are hoping to get a broad range of volunteers.

If you are interested in participating or have any questions before making your decision feel free to contact Emily Scholl.
