Envision will be hosting the hands-on portion of I-STEAM live on Saturday, April 27th. I-STEAM Live is an event where over 150 middle school students will be coming from Champaign/Urbana, Chicago and East St. Louis to experience hands-on science, technology, engineering, art, and math. To make this day possible, the principle scholars program (PSP) has asked envision to help staff the 6 break-out rooms. The activities will be planned beforehand and all we need to do is come help run the activities. To do this, we will need at least twelve volunteers at all times. The six rooms will be divided into three sub-categories: “Robotic-Hand”, “Lung-Model”, and “Wearable Electronics.” The students will be split into six groups (~30 students per group) and rotate between each of the break-out rooms. In order to respect the time of the volunteers, we have split the day up into shifts. Please sign up for as many as possible. If you are going to be there for Session 2 or Session 3, we invite you to join for lunch as well.
Logistics: This event is taking place on Saturday, April 27th, with volunteer time slots from 10 am to 3 pm (volunteers can sign up for part of the day instead of committing to the full time).
How can I get involved? If interested in volunteering, please sign up here. If you have questions, please contact Emil Annevelink(firstname.lastname@example.org).
