Volunteer with Us
Aberdeen Science Centre aspire to be a 5 star visitor attraction. We are looking for volunteers to support us in achieving this.
Are you interested in giving back to your community? Would you like to develop your communication and team working skills? Are you passionate about inspiring people and helping them engage with science? Do you need to gain experience to add to your CV?
Then volunteering at Aberdeen Science Centre is for you!
We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers who are friendly and welcoming with a keen desire to try new things and support our staff and fellow volunteers to create a five start visitor experience.
Anyone is welcome to apply and you do not need to have experience in science engagement or a background or qualification in science – all you need is passion and enthusiasm!
We are the STEM Ambassador Hub for the North of Scotland so we ask all ASC Volunteers over the age of 17 to become a STEM Ambassadors. It is a simple process and it means your volunteering hours count towards the national effort to encourage more young people into STEM. It is also a great way to keep track of how much you have volunteered.
Find out more on our STEM Ambassador Hub page.
Volunteering at Aberdeen Science Centre has changed my life for the better. I am Visually impaired and Aberdeen Science Centre has become a place in which I don’t have to pretend to be something I’m not.
On my first day at ASC I was shy and avoided talking to members of the public. The confidence I built up from volunteering has helped me become a Member of the Scottish Youth Parliament and a Cub leader.
My favourite bit of volunteering at Aberdeen Science Centre was that I got to talk and do Science, which is a big passion of mine. I LOVE IT!
