VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES WITH THE PUBLIC
Are you passionate about science, technology, and art? Would you enjoy sharing your enthusiasm with Museum visitors of all ages? Join our education and public programs team as a volunteer!
The MIT Museum education and public programs team welcomes individuals who are committed to engaging with the public and sharing excitement about and knowledge of MIT, current MIT research, or the MIT experience.
Volunteers lead demonstrations in our galleries on a range of topics from photography to robotics, interacting with visitors and empowering them to delve deeper into the subject. Run one of our existing hands-on activities, facilitate programs in our maker-space, or work with the education and public programs team to develop a new demonstration showcasing areas of research that you want to share with the public.
