‘Adventure in Science’ Seeks Teachers
Adventure in Science (AIS), a nonprofit science education program for children, is planning its 22nd year at NIH and is looking for volunteer teachers. The program, which meets on Saturday mornings October through March in Bldg. 10, is designed to show 8- to 11-year-olds the fun of science using hands-on activities — from building (and launching) model rockets to dissecting frogs. AIS teachers are mostly volunteers from the NIH community, from postdocs to institute directors. This is a great opportunity to exercise your teaching skills with an enthusiastic audience. You can volunteer for only one Saturday or for several. If you are interested in volunteering, contact Vathani Arudchandran, Udayan Guha, or Ed Max.
