Do you love to engage people about the natural sciences? The Academy's docents use an informal and conversational approach with guests to spark curiosity, inspire action, and foster an interest in continued scientific discovery. Docents are trained in theory and best practices of informal engagement, taught fundamental scientific principles and Academy initiatives, and receive training in Specialty Areas.
The docent program requires its volunteers to work three, 3.5-hour shifts per month during a minimum six-month commitment.
Our upcoming docent Specialty Area classes:
"Let's Get Physical": June 2018. Dates soon TBD. Please check back soon!
