Passion for Science?
Share it as a Team Tesla volunteer!
Team Tesla Volunteers will develop leadership skills while assisting Mid-America Science Museum staff members in the necessary duties to effectively execute daily operations as well as special events. Team Tesla Volunteers will work alongside Museum educators and will be student leaders at summer camp and other special events. This is an opportunity to take part in a volunteer program which will introduce students ages 14-18 to the world of volunteering in an environment which fosters a passion for science, technology, engineering, art, and math.
Team Tesla participants will be selected from a pool of applicants who complete the application process. Those selected to move forward will be scheduled for an interview. Successful candidates will be notified via phone call. This process provides teens an opportunity to develop skills needed to obtain their first job.

Parents/guardians will need to provide verbal and written confirmation acknowledging their agreement and understanding of the program requirements.
