Want to come help with all the fun at Thinkery? Teen Participation Day is a one-day, all-day, behind-the-scenes and on-the-gallery-floor volunteer experience for teens age 13–18. This special day typically includes rotating through the galleries to assist visitors in learning about STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) through hands-on activities and play.
Registered teens will meet at Thinkery in the morning on the day of their training, and they are expected to stay onsite until closing. Participants are expected to work with and speak to a high volume of visitors (adults and children) with a bright and positive demeanor during their service.
These service opportunities are scheduled throughout the year based on museum need and staff availability. Registration is first-come, first served, and requires a $25 participation fee. Typically, registration opens one month prior to a Teen Participation Day.
