The Heart of The Tech

Each volunteer is a key component of The Tech’s mission to inspire the innovator in everyone. We do this through exhibits, content, and programs that encourage hands-on learning. 

Volunteers are required to attend a 75 minute virtual orientation (which can be done from the comfort of your home) and a 2.5 hour tour and training at The Tech Interactive. These trainings are offered twice a month.
