What You Can Do

The Science of Ideas

Imagine working with interesting people to find cool speakers, host fun and interesting events, and bring the importance of science to adults.

That’s what you can do when you volunteer with ISC. We’re looking for people of all ages and all walks of life to help us plan and execute our vision.

Science is the idea that ideas can change the world. We’re looking for self-motivated people who are driven by the same exciting thought. We think you’re going to like being part of us.

Who You Are

Creative. Curious. Committed.

Some of us work in science. Some of us work in marketing. Some of us are retired or just starting out in the workplace. But what do we all have in common?

We know science is important. We know it’s fun. And we want to make science part of our shared culture and community.

The best part? There’s no limit to what you can do. If you have an idea, we want to hear it. This is a volunteer-led organization. Your passion is our shared future.

Like to Write? Know Your Stuff? Share Your Knowledge.

Our blog is a resource for the whole community — filled with cutting-edge information and genuine insight. If you love writing about science, we’d love to publish your thoughts on Science Unsealed. Check out more about how to share your knowledge with the world.

More Ways To Get Involved

We proud to have volunteers at all levels of commitment.

  • The Board: Plan and Implement
    Our Board is made up of volunteers who meet monthly to come up with ideas, plan events, create new opportunities, lead committees, and more. We socialize, and we get down to science.
  • Volunteers: Execute Events
    We rely on volunteers who want to help out at our runs, our cocktail parties, and more. It’s less time, but no less valuable.
