My name is Daniel Folk, and I am honored to be MiSci’s volunteer of the month for June 2019. I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Applied Mathematics from Wayne State University.
I have wonderful memories of visiting the Michigan Science Center when I was younger, so I jumped at the opportunity to become a volunteer. The contagious enthusiasm of the staff inspired me to embrace curiosity and the fun side of learning. I felt the call to complete the circle and help ignite a passion for science in the next generation.
My favorite part of volunteering is seeing the spark of comprehension and excitement in a young visitor’s eyes as new knowledge is absorbed. Whether it involves making slime at our Centennial Lab or building a bridge in Spark!Lab, I am honored to be able to witness the learning process and potential of the next generation’s greatest minds. I can confidently say that I enjoy every minute of volunteering at the Science Center.
