Members of the GSF 2016 Volunteer team getting ready for some science busking

GSF volunteer team

Glasgow Science Festival run a variety of projects throughout the year including the main festival in June. To enable us to deliver these projects we recruit a team of reliable and motivated volunteers who can get involved in many different aspects of the events we host; from demonstrating science activities at our family days and community events, welcoming guests to evening events and helping behind the scenes - generally making sure our events run smoothly!  We offer training opportunities for the volunteers in advance of the festival and 'on-the-job' training to ensure that they get the most from the experience.

We keep our applications open all year round and contact potential volunteers as opportunities arise. For GSF 2021 we will be recruiting a small team to support delivery who, for insurance purposes, must be current University of Glasgow staff and students, 18 years old or over.
