Volunteers

Welcome Volunteers!

The NSB volunteers have been the key to the success of the National Science Bowl® for the past 28 years and we look forward to working with YOU to help make the 2020 National Science Bowl® even better!!

All ages (adults and students) and skill levels are encouraged to volunteer - students, grades 3 and higher, and student groups are welcome to volunteer for service hour credits. To prepare you for your National Science Bowl® adventure, we will hold training sessions in April 2020 at the U.S. Department of Energy.
