The Children’s Museum of Houston is looking for volunteers for the 2011 Young Inventors’ Showcase. The Young Inventors’ Showcase is an opportunity for students in kindergarten to eighth grade to participate in a campus-wide invention exhibit at their school or a city-wide invention showcase at the Children’s Museum. The grand-prize winner of the city-wide showcase wins an opportunity to work with a patent attorney to apply for a patent for their invention.
Volunteers are needed to help provide a successful event at the city-wide showcase, which will take place on Saturday May 14 from 8:00 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Children's Museum of Houston (1500 Binz, Houston, TX 77004). Volunteers are requested for any of the following 2 hour timeslots: 8am - 10am, 10am - 12pm, 12pm - 2pm, and 2pm - 4pm. Volunteer commitments are requested at least 2 weeks in advance of the event so that the event coordinators can plan appropriately.
Volunteers will help with registration, guide participants to their designated display location, assist participants with setting up their display, and assist with tallying up participant evaluation points for judging.
