• 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 September 22 and October 25 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.
