Biology outreach – needs volunteers!

I.U.’s Biology Outreach Program is looking for undergraduate volunteers to help us bring biology lessons to local elementary students during Spring Semester 2014.  We have two programs  –  kindergarten  and  3rd grade –  that include a variety of experiments, demonstrations (including live animals!),  crafts, etc. that help kids develop knowledge in and enthusiasm for science.

No experience or specific biology background is required  – we will teach you what you need to know.  We can also provide transportation to schools.  Undergraduate volunteers need to be able to commit to a  2.5 hour  visit about every other week  – for a total of 4- 5 visits during the spring semester.   They should also enjoy working with excited, enthusiastic children!

If you are interested in learning more about the 3rd grade program, please contact Leah Simoni, (  If you are interested in potentially working with kindergartners, please contact Diane Pikaard (
