Approximately 150 volunteers are needed to run the MN Regional Science Bowl of High School Students held in January and the MN State Regional Science Bowl for Middle School Students held in February of each year. The majority of volunteers are either working in academia or in one of the many scientific companies in the area. Chemists, physicians, researchers, engineers, professors, biologists and many others help to continue the Minnesota Academy of Science’s long tradition of programs of excellence. Volunteers staff the roles of question proofreader, moderator, scientific judge, scorekeeper, rules judge, and timekeeper.
Volunteers may work one or both of the competitions. Volunteer shifts for each Science Bowl are available as either a half day tournament volunteer (the first part of the tournament) or as a full day tournament volunteer. If you plan to work the entire day, please bring a lunch. (We will no longer be able to provide lunch and t-shirts due to funding constraints.)
Registration for volunteers will open November 1, 2018
Thank you to all our great volunteers!!
Training is provided on-site the day each of the events. A brief overview can be found on online training materials.
