For NanoDay, which is mainly centered on outreach to high school students, we bring in around 200 high school students who go through a series of activities through the day. This is a bustling, high energy event. Last year, it required about as many volunteers as visiting students.
Volunteers get a sandwich lunch on NanoDay, a NanoDay t-shirt with last year’s image award winner featured on the back, and an invite to the Thank You lunch. It is also a great opportunity to practice and build skills (communication, group management, etc.) and can be added to your resumes. Importantly, this is a chance to support an event that aims to excite teenagers about science, engineering and technology.
