• Work individually or with a team to develop a hands-on activity related to your current work. Ample concept development and materials support will be provided by OMSI staff, including one 1-2 hour meeting at each Fellows lab or workplace. Individual meeting will be scheduled between June 8 and July 18 and will take place at your lab, office, or place of work.
• Participate in a minimum of three OMSI programs per year. Fellows most frequently participate in Meet a Scientist. Meet a Scientist is a public program held on the afternoon of the second and fourth Saturdays of each month, exclusively featuring OMSI Fellows with their hands-on, table-top activities. Each shift is 3 hours long, plus set-up time.
Fellows will also complete an official OMSI volunteer program application and submit information for a background check before participating in Meet a Scientist.
