Volunteer with us!

You can inspire the next generation of scientists

Genome BC Geneskool volunteers are passionate about science, learning and contributing to community. We are role models for the next generation of scientists and commit to:

    • Connect students to the scientific community through our own experiences.
    • Enhance students’ curiosity and appreciation for the natural world.
    • Develop an engaged and educated citizenry.

Our volunteers visit classrooms, facilitate day-long and week-long workshops and engage the public at community science celebrations across the province.
