Naval Undersea Museum seeking volunteers

Feb. 22 event runs from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The U.S. Naval Undersea Museum is looking for volunteers to help with Discover E Day on Feb. 22 from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Discover E Day features applications of science, engineering, and math for aspiring learners at every level. Event volunteers will support activity stations to encourage participant creativity, answer questions, and boost engagement in the activities.

“Discover E Day is a program designed to engage and inspire exploration and discovery of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics,” NUM Director Lindy Dosher said. “Our volunteers are enthusiastic teachers and role models for the scientists of the future. Their professional expertise and enthusiasm engaging with the community really make this a special event.”

Some of the activities planned for the event include engineering design challenges, science experiments, coding games and more.

“We are fortunate to have the support of local sailors and Navy engineers,” Museum Education Specialist Valerie Johnson said. “In the past, we have received help from local engineering professionals and from engineering students also.”

Crews, teams, friends, and families are welcome to volunteer together. Event volunteers must be at least 16 years old and pass a background check. Skills needed to qualify include good oral communication, patience in dealing with people, ability to work independently or as part of a team, enjoy helping children learn, and the ability to accept direction and supervision.

Expert knowledge of engineering concepts is not required, as training is provided in the form of written instructions in advance of the program and orientation the morning of the program. Lunch will be provided. Those interested in volunteering can access the application at surveymonkey.com/r/VolEDay2020.
