Group Volunteer Program

Exhibit cleaning

Armed with cleaning cloths and the occasional toothbrush, volunteer groups help keep our exhibit halls spick and span (and de-stickered).

Group cleanings are available at the following times:

  • Weekdays: 7:00 – 9:30 am
  • Saturdays: 8:00 – 10:30 am
  • Sundays: 10:00 – 12:00 pm

Cleaning supplies are provided. Volunteers should wear comfortable clothing.

Event Help

Does your group want to help with McWane events and special days like National Engineers Week, Astronomy Day, or Beaker Bash? Each event is a little different, but volunteers will interact with guests and help with activities. Volunteer Services holds a training session at the start of each event.

Corporate Takeover

Want to stimulate interest, showcase relevance, and increase awareness of the science behind your profession? In Corporate Takeover your group will take over one of our activity stations to facilitate activities that relate science to your field. We can offer the activities and training, or we can work together to develop something uniquely you.

Group Volunteer Application Process

Please elect one member of your group to serve as the primary contact person. This person should submit the application on behalf of the group and will act as the liaison between the group and McWane. If you have any questions about our opportunities of the application process, please email
