This summer we welcomed two more sessions of Rising Stars to OMSI. The Rising Stars program provides a chance for 60 high school students to volunteer and gain valuable hands-on experience interacting with guests on the museum floor. At the end of each session, the Rising Stars have each spent 90 hours volunteering at the museum.
As part of their program OMSI Rising Stars will research and create their own personal science demonstrations. Each session culminates with a demo fair where the 30 session participants present their demos to the public.
