Supporting science education through service.
November 1, 2019
BSMA Update flyer


The Bradbury Science Museum (BSM) together with the Bradbury Science Museum Association (BSMA) are looking for volunteers for our latest endeavor, a docent program dedicated to supporting educational programs at the Bradbury Science Museum. If you’re interested in giving of your time and expertise, have a passion for science or education, enjoy working with school-aged children and adolescents, and can pass a background check, our new STEM Education Docent program may be a great fit for you.

As a docent, you will partner with BSM educators to deliver STEM programming to small groups of students. Programs are 2 hours in length and are offered Monday through Friday, morning and afternoon, during the school year. Docents will receive training on how to work with students in grades 4-12 and learn science content and facilitation techniques for hands-on activities related to museum programming.

STEM Education Docents are expected to be available once or twice a week for approximately 3 hours between 9:30am – 3:00pm. The museum’s busiest field trip season is February through May. At other times of the year, shifts will be scheduled on an as-needed basis.

Please join us for an informational session on Thursday, November 14, 2019 at 10:30am at the Bradbury Science Museum.

More information will be available at the BSMA webpage in the coming weeks. In the meantime, the application is available here. Please send completed applications and other questions or expressions of interest to bsm-edu@lanl.gov. Thank you for your interest in the Bradbury Science Museum!
