The National Cancer Institute at Frederick is looking for volunteers to participate in the Elementary Outreach Program, which takes interactive, scientific lessons to students in first through fifth grades in Frederick County. Lessons have been created in coordination with Frederick County Public School's Eight Practices for K-12 Science Classrooms to make teaching easy for volunteers, fun for students and beneficial to teachers as supplemental material. Volunteers can help with lessons such as crime scene investigation, making elephant toothpaste, mixing colors and creating GAK and worm goo. Step-by-step lesson plans and materials are provided to volunteers. Being an EOP volunteer takes very little time from the work day. Volunteers can participate in as little as two days over the course of the school year, with each day requiring as little as four hours. NCI at Frederick is expanding the program this year to include volunteers from the Fort Detrick community. This is a fantastic opportunity for Soldiers and Family members, retirees and civilians to get out of the office and back into the classroom. Soldiers can use this as an off-post volunteer activity that will help in the application for the Military Outstanding Volunteer Service Medal. Volunteers go out to the schools in teams of four, so members of your unit can put together a team or team up with a group from NCI. Why not surprise your child by showing up in their class to help them learn more about how much fun science can be. Remember, you do not need to be a scientist to participate and everything is prepared and ready to go.Sign up today to tomorrow a happier, healthier outlook, for both you and the children in the community.To register: http://ncifrederick.cancer.gov/Programs/General/EOP/Volunteer.aspx
This opportunity is also on the Volunteer Management Information System (VMIS) under NCI at Frederick.
