High School Volunteers Needed!

The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History is seeking high school volunteers (Junior Counselors), ages 14-18, for "Science is Everywhere" Summer Camps, running May 30 through August 11, 2017. This is a wonderful opportunity for older students to foster their interest in science, develop leadership skills and have fun! The Junior Counselor Application should be submitted to Betsy Deiterman by email, mail or drop-off. For best selection, applications should be submitted no later than April 7, 2017.

For more information contact Betsy Deiterman at bdeiterman@nuclearmuseum.org or 505-245-2137, extension 122. 


Due to the prevalence and severity of allergies among our campers, the Museum is implementing a strict "NO NUTS" policy. With every camper's utmost safety in mind, it is now a requirement that campers may not bring any nut products (tree nuts or peanuts) in their lunches, and all planned activities throughout every camp session will not include nuts.
