NIU Students: We need your help!!
The NIU STEM Outreach program is growing, and so is our need for volunteers to help with projects and events.
Opportunities to Help
STEMfest - Every October
Our largest on-campus event requires hundreds of volunteers to make the day a success. Wield a hammer or sling some slime. Come in costume, or not, and help more than 4000 visitors learn to love science.
There are plenty of jobs to go around, whether or not your major is in science.
- Staffing the event
STEMfest 2012 Volunteer Registration is Open!
We count on volunteers like you to provide a positive experience for everyone who participates in STEMfest. Last year’s student volunteers were highly rated on exit surveys, and we hope to continue to exceed expectations again this year.
Students volunteering to work at a specific group or organization's table should register through that organization and not this page. A short orientation meeting will be held on Friday, October 19, at 7 p.m. Pizza and soda will be served, and parking and meal vouchers will be distributed.
Please visit the volunteer registration page for more information.
Other opportunities throughout the year
