Get Involved, be a Volunteer!
A vital consideration of our STEM YEA Academy experience is safety. We will need volunteers to walk the students to and from all of their events. We will have dorm floor monitors on duty throughout the night. Upon signing up you will be contacted by the Rotary District 7430 Youth Compliance Officer for STEM YEA with further information regarding Rotary Youth Protection Policy screening.
A great side benefit for volunteers is that you are welcome to sit in on the sessions yourself, which can be rewarding in several aspects. The SETI Institute, working with the STEM YEA Curriculum Development team, developed an innovative interdisciplinary curriculum of hands-on STEM and project sessions around the theme – Astrobiology: Search for Life on Mars, engaging the student in multiple sciences and cross-sciences while encouraging important team-building and leadership skills. In addition, we have infused the learning with an awareness of Rotary’s causes and opportunities to work towards solutions for the future.
Mike Orbin, a member of the Allentown Rotary Club, is serving as the STEM YEA Volunteer Coordinator.
