Volunteers Needed for Aspirnaut™ Beaming of STEM Labs to Rural America. 

Aspirnaut is entering its 5th year of beaming hands-on inquiry-based STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) labs to rural Tennessee, Arkansas, Maine. Videoconferencing to youth in 3rd-8th grades is the perfect opportunity for post-docs, graduate and undergraduate students to gain valuable teaching experience and to help supplement science education in rural areas. Learn to communicate with bright, motivated students and educate them on topics ranging from biology and chemistry to astronomy and engineering through the next-generation classroom—the webcam. Minimal time required—maximum impact gained. Click here to visit the Aspirnaut™ website to learn more and see what you could do for these eager students! Click here for a Volunteer FAQ.
