Teen STEM Media Volunteers

(All Teens)

Where do you experience math and science in the real world? Discover math around you and create videos to help teachers better communicate key math and science concepts.
  • Create two-minute videos about math or science in your everyday environment
  • Share videos on the talkSTEM YouTube Channel (Dr. Koshi Dhingra, director)
  • Teach students and support teachers!
This is an ongoing opportunity. Teens may choose to create one video or to stay as a long-term video volunteer.

There's Still Lots to Do at the Museum!
