Our newest installation, Level Up, is a year-long learning through play initiative that features interactive and immersive learning experiences. This prototype exhibit connects playing video games to problem solving in daily life and how the skills learned through gaming can be applied to potential careers.
Do you love playing chess? Are you an expert at Portal 2? Maybe you just really love playing cards. If so, volunteering as a Floor Ambassador in Level Up might be the perfect role for you. The Floor Ambassador’s main goal is to help guests connect to all the ways they can interact with the games in the space. While also helping to maintain an environment that is safe and fun for all, Floor Ambassadors have the opportunity to interact with visitors of all ages and backgrounds.
Volunteers for Level Up are needed Wednesday-Sunday from 9:30am to 4:30pm with late nights one Friday a month. All volunteers are asked to commit to 10 hours per month with a flexible schedule to maintain their standing as a volunteer at the Michigan Science Center.
Looking to get out of the office? The Michigan Science Center also offers volunteer opportunities to various sized teams of people from companies, schools and other organizations to assist with a wide range of projects.
