Volunteer Outreach Opportunities

If you are interested in reaching a broader audience and making an impact on the community with your passion for chemistry, you might think about participating in some outreach activities!

We will try to update this page and the calendar as new events become available. Feel free to bookmark this page.

Email Christina at forbescr550@gmail.com for more information about any of these events or programs!


CAZACS Outreach Opportunities

CAZACS is represented at (or organizing) the following events, and we need your help! If you want to be added to a list of volunteers that we can count on, let Christina know!

Thurs-Sun May 21-24, 2020 – all-day – Phoenix Convention Center
realtimeSTEAM Science Programming at Phoenix Fan Fusion
***Fan Fusion has been postponed until 2021***
RealtimeSTEAM is once again partnering with Phoenix Fan Fusion (formerly Phoenix Comicon) to provide Science and Education programming during the four-day geek celebration. Phoenix Fan Fusion 2019 will include over 100 hours of panels, expos and interactive spaces highlighting the scientists, engineers and research institutions in Arizona that put the science in science fiction.
How can you help? realtimeSTEAM is looking for panelists to speak about different topics. CAZACS will also be hosting a Chemistry Cafe with realtimeSTEAM, an open and informal discussion with guests. (Note: the panels count for continuting education credit for educators, and so panelists need to have completed either a 4-year degree or have 5 years of experience. Current undergraduates may not serve as panelists, but there are other ways to volunteer).
Reach out to Christina if you want more information about the panel topics or if you want to be involved in the Chemistry Cafe!


Other Outreach Opportunities

If you’re looking for other ways to volunteer, these might be of interest to you! (Note: while CAZACS is not formally sponsoring or participating in these events, you can still get involved! You may contact Christina and ask for more information about any of these events).

Anytime, anywhere
Skype a Scientist
Skype a Scientist matches scientists with classrooms around the world! We want to give students the opportunity to get to know a “real scientist”. This program allows us to reach students from all over the world without having to leave the lab!
How can you help? Skype a Scientist is always recruiting scientists that are looking to inspire the next generation in STEM. You and your interests will be matched to a teacher, and then you’ll coordinate your schedules to do a video chat with a classroom and engage with their students! Scientist/classroom matches are coordinated for fall and spring semesters, but you can sign up any time here.
