Sign-up Now Closed: Science Outreach at TechnoQuest with Girl Scouts

THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST AND ENTHUSIASM FOR TECHNOQUEST. VOLUNTEER SIGN-UPS ARE NOW CLOSED DUE TO ALL THE SPOTS BEING FILLED ALREADY. WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO ATTEND OUR OTHER UPCOMING EVENTS!

TechnoQuest is a yearly outreach program with the Girl Scouts of North Carolina Coastal Pines that helps young girls and budding science enthusiasts learn more about scientific research, careers, and concepts in a friendly environment. With the help of women from GWIS, we can make this an enjoyable experience not just for the girls but also for you! Science and technology careers cover an array of disciplines and if you’re interested in outreach and want to help someone learn about a career they didn’t even think exists, volunteer at TechnoQuest 2018!

GWIS – Research Triangle will participate in a morning speed mentoring session with the girls, followed by a hands-on workshop and presentation. This workshop will cover how scientists use DNA to solve crimes, helping the girls become DNA Detectives themselves! You can volunteer for one or both of the sessions, and also have the option to join us for lunch. Volunteering for both sessions is appreciated! 

When: Saturday, November 10, 2018 | Time: 10 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. 
Where: Meredith College, 3800 Hillsborough St., Raleigh NC 27607, Map

Volunteers will be sent more details about the workshop and/or networking after signing up. We look forward to seeing you there!
