Professional Volunteer Application
Please read the following before proceeding with the volunteer application:

As a nationally recognized non-profit, Shodor strives to improve math and science education through the effective use of modeling and simulation technologies - "computational science". Shodor works to ensure that students are prepared to enter into computationally intensive scientific research fields through appropriate training and mentoring by active scientists.

Shodor welcomes professional volunteers that are passionate about education, computational science, and engineering. Previous knowledge in computational modeling tools, programming languages, and web design is preferred. Volunteers with experience in developing lesson plans, knowledge of different teaching philosophies, and experience in the classroom are welcomed.

Professional Volunteers:
Professional volunteers will help train and mentor middle, high school, and undergraduate students in Shodor's Apprenticeship and Internship programs. Volunteers will provide guidance for students in developing computational science resources and curriculum, editing current curriculum and website content, teaching offsite and summer workshops, and a variety of other related tasks. Volunteers will work closely with students and help students develop skills in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
