Students 2 Science (S2S) is made possible by the generous contributions of its many volunteers. STEM professionals from the local community and corporations volunteer to work side by side with our young students, providing them with support, inspiration, motivation and career advice. The S2S experience reduces student intimidation, makes science more relatable, and allows STEM career paths to be more approachable. We rely heavily on the skills and expertise of volunteer professional scientists in accomplishing these goals—the success of our programs depends on their dedication and commitment.
STEM professionals who volunteer in our programs do so as Mentors, Assistant Lab Instructors, and Virtual Laboratory (V-Lab) Volunteers. They come from many sources, practicing STEM Professionals, retired scientists and scientists-in-transition, college and PhD students, teachers, interested community leaders and STEM advocates. Our volunteers by definition bring positive and generous attitude to the students in our programs. This positive attitude and affinity of the subject matter is the very essence of S2S as an organization, as promoting enthusiasm for STEM careers is one of our primary goals.
We would like to take a moment to thank all our volunteers for their hard work and dedication!
