Wizards

Welcome Wizards Spring 2015 Volunteers! 


What is Wizards? Wizards was created in 1994 as a program to get students more excited and involved in science. Wizards volunteers perform a range of experiments to enhance students’ STEM education and engage them with science. Volunteers perform these science experiments with greater Boston area students of various ages on a weekly basis.  Through these experiments, we strive to help students connect the principles of science to their everyday world.
Volunteers are split into groups led by a peer leader. The peer leader is responsible for communicating with their group members and making sure all goes well at site. The experiment coordinators ensure that supplies are ready for each site and plan our experiments. The program manager provides a lesson plan, but volunteers are encouraged to add their own knowledge and experience to their plans. The overall goal is that everyone has an enjoyable and rewarding experience, while also enticing students to continue studies and possibly careers in the STEM fields. We strive to bring a little Magic to local students!

Time commitment is 2-3 hours one day per week for the entire semester.  Applications for the spring semester are closed but please consider volunteering with Student Food Rescue for a summer service opportunity!
