For this day to be a success, we will need volunteers to facilitate ONE of the STEM activities for the day as students rotate through your station. You do not need to have a STEM background to be a great volunteer!
You do not need to be an approved school volunteer to help with this day. Junior Achievement will provide online training as well as on-site support to all volunteers. A light breakfast and lunch will also be available for volunteers.
The PSAT's will be October 11th this year and will be taken in a digital format. Any junior interested in taking the test please fill out the form below to register (it is also posted on the student's SUNsite).
