Parent Volunteer Signups

STEM night won’t succeed without parents’ help!!! Please kindly take a moment to look over the volunteering positions and signup to ensure a successful event for our kids.

  • We tried to split the volunteering hours so that each volunteer only helps about one hour and still has another hour to enjoy the STEM activities.
  • Two persons will be sponsored to get food sale license.
  • We provide volunteer positions for high school students.
