The Penn STEM Outreach Initiative staff can act as the bridge between community groups and Penn science researchers as they seek to participate events like judging science fairs or local mentorship programs.
Please fill out the request form on this page completely AT LEAST 4 WEEKS BEFORE your scheduled event. Once approved, an SOI staff member will publish your event on our website and contact you in case of any volunteer sign ups. Requests submitted with less than 4 weeks lead time may not be promoted internally.
Please note: the SOI cannot guarantee that any Penn community members will be available for or reply to volunteer requests. Members of the Penn community set their own schedules and may have conflicts or other responsibilities, but the SOI will make a good faith effort to fill positions and advertise your opportunity to those who have previously indicated an interest in volunteering.
