STEM volunteers


All volunteer slots are full. We hope to see you at the event!

In order to be successful, STEMCON relies heavily on its wonderful volunteers! This year's event will take place on Saturday, April 27, 2019 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. There are numerous ways you can help make our event a success.  For our 2019 event, volunteers can sign up  for one of two time shifts (unless otherwise noted below):
