For Volunteers

Outreach signups for Spring 2023 now closed. Those who are still interested may participate next semester! The signup link will be posted here at that time.

The UF Chemistry Club Science Outreach Program is an exciting opportunity to share your enthusiasm about science with K-8 students at local public schools. Members are typically put into groups of up to four and assigned to a class for the semester. Depending on your availability, you can make visits weekly, biweekly (twice a month), or monthly to perform labs that supplement what the students are learning. Detailed instructions for the labs are available on the Outreach Lab Library page. You will be provided with the necessary supplies to perform the labs and reimbursed for transportation mileage, where applicable.

A detailed orientation will be held at the beginning of each semester to go over specific expectations for our volunteers. If you are unable to make it , contact the coordinators as soon as possible to arrange accommodations.

Contact: The Outreach Director and Internal Outreach Coordinators are Lauren Andrews and Leah Kessler, respectively. Please feel free to contact them by emailing or by using the #outreach channel in the Discord.

How to get to the Chem Club Closet:

  • All labs and materials are stored in the outreach closet, located in CLB 311H.
