Applicant must have a recommendation from a college or university Physical Science or Life Science Faculty. Applicant must be eligible for Chemistry 101.
The volunteer will learn how to prepare and dispense solutions and chemicals used for all lab classes, which may include acids, bases, buffers, and stains. Learn how to operate laboratory equipment such as balances, centrifuges, pH electrodes, spectrophotometers, and other equipment used in Chemistry courses.
Learn to maintain inventory records of supplies, materials, and equipment.
Prepare and assemble equipment used in laboratory experiments and demonstrations.
Store supplies and equipment, and keep stockrooms and working areas clean and orderly.
Expectations of Volunteer:
1. Divided into tiers & classes (Tiers are related to how many hours are worked per week = 10 hours is tier 1; 20 hours is tier 2; taken one chemistry class (Chem 101 eligible would be class A), taken (Chem. 101 and/or 102 would be class B). This dictates what types of activities the volunteer may be involved in.
2. Each volunteer will have a set schedule per semester.
3. Volunteers will be trained and as their productivity increases their assigned activities will be expanded.
