Volunteer STEM Opportunities
The Chapter welcomes involvement from our members and non-members to assist with STEM initiatives. Any type of support would be greatly appreciated. We welcome additional ideas to enhance the Chapter’s STEM efforts. Support opportunities include:
Hosting a Tour
The DPS Outreach initiative links Michigan businesses with students to offer learning opportunities through presentations and facility tours. Onsite presentations at local businesses can be scheduled throughout the school year based on volunteer availability.
Becoming a Mentor
The FIRST Robotics team always needs mentors in mechanics, electronics, pneumatics, fundraising, business, web site management, public relations, etc.. The season runs 1 August to 30 June, with intensity variations.
Volunteers are needed throughout the season to support local Science Olympiad workshops and events. Volunteers are needed every summer to assist at STARBASE camps. Please inquire for locations and time durations. STARBASE features members of industry who wish to demonstrate career opportunities in STEM related fields. Onsite school presentations can be scheduled throughout the school year based on volunteer availability.
Additional STEM involvement and support options:
- Present technology and career briefings
- Coach technology teams
- Fund Scholarships
- Host internships and job-shadowing
