Volunteer Opportunities for Education and Outreach for Employees and Users
Volunteers are key to the success of our programs. Look and see where you can contribute and let us know. If you have ideas for volunteering that are not listed here, email Marge Bardeen. If you are looking for ideas or materials, please contact Susan Dahl in the Teacher Resource Center. There are also links to resources on the Physicists page.
Each year the Fermilab Director presents the Director's Award to an exceptional volunteer in K-12 Education programs.
