Looking for a way to Volunteer?

Sep 15, 2016 by Clyde The Mountain Lion

Check out this message on how to Volunteer!

My name is Vicki Taylor and I have been coordinating the Cool Science Carnival that takes place here on campus for the past few years.  This fall will be the 7th year that UCCS has hosted this event.  It is scheduled for Saturday, October 8 starting at 10 am until 4:30 pm. It has been growing every year and last year we have over 6500+ visitors.   This is a free event where we have over 100 exhibitors, Science shows and many of our professors and graduate students open up their labs to tours for the visitors.

In order to pull off this event, we need many volunteers in many different areas.  I have attached a flyer that will start showing up around campus asking for volunteer help for October 8.  But, I am also looking for additional hands-on activity stations.  It would be a great way for our student clubs to get involved and show the campus visitors that day what makes UCCS unique and special.  Most of the visitors are families and last year I was amazed at the number of children we had that were excited at all that UCCS and these hands-on experiences had to offer.

  Please send them to me at or 719-290-8933 if they have any questions.

Thank you for your help.
