Volunteer Opportunity: Discover E Day Explainer/Greeter
The U.S. Naval Undersea Museum is looking for Active Duty, dependents, and civilians from the Department of Defense (DOD), and members of the general public, to volunteer with the annual education event, Discover E Day, on Saturday, April 6, 2024, from 8:30am until 3pm. Discover E Day features fun applications of science, technology, engineering, and math for aspiring learners at every level. Event volunteers will support activity stations to encourage participant creativity, answer questions, boost engagement in the activities, and represent engineering skills used in DOD service and careers.

To provide a positive and creative environment for kids and adults looking to discover and explore science, technology, engineering, and mathematics at U.S. Naval Undersea Museum’s Discover E Day.
Discover E Day takes place on Saturday, April 6, 2024, from 8:30am – 3:00pm, at the U.S. Naval Undersea Museum, 1 Garnett Way, Keyport, WA 98345. Lunch will be provided.
As a Discover E Day volunteer, you will receive an orientation to the activity stations from the program manager, select which activity you would like to facilitate, engage visitors in experimentation, and help put away program materials.
Expert knowledge of engineering concepts is not required, as training will be provided in the form of written instructions in advance of the program, and an orientation on the morning of the program. The only skills you need are the desire and patience to help people engage and discover, an ability to work as part of a team, and a willingness to accept direction and supervision. You may be asked to assist in case of emergency.
Valerie Johnson, program manager, will provide explanations and demonstrations of the activities prior to the program start so you are able to explain them to museum visitors.
Supplies and Equipment
The U.S. Naval Undersea Museum will provide all necessary supplies and equipment for the event. Lunch and volunteer identification will be provided. You are encouraged to bring a water bottle with lid for use in the museum.
