We are currently looking for volunteers to help with these committees:

  • Hospitality -- provide support (food and drinks) for STEM events, such as the Senior Celebration and STEM points celebration

  • Fundraising -- organize events with local restaurants (such as Papa Murphy's Take and Bake Pizza, Moe's) where a portion of the sale goes to the STEM Advisory Board. Maintain and encourage folks to join loyalty programs (such as Harris Teeter VIC cards, Amazon Smile)

  • Outreach -- work with STEM Academy Director to identify possible business community opportunities and maintain a list of contacts.

If you are interested in any of these opportunities, contact Advisory Board chair, Marie Dexter.
