This summer, OMSI has hosted 32 bright high school students in our Rising Stars Program. Rising Stars provides volunteer opportunities for students ages 14-18 to gain valuable, hands-on experience working with museum visitors. During their 5-week session, Rising Stars attend a weekly class focusing on leadership and presentation skills, making science a hands-on topic, as well as professionalism and how to succeed in today's workplace.
