For Volunteers

Eastern Iowa's students —
2007 Junior Champions: Shelby Miller and Raph Burne 2007 Senior Champions: Hannah Dotseth and Megan Bartholomew
— need you to volunteer your time at their Science Fair!

EISEF exists to benefit the students. It happens each year thanks to the efforts of hundreds of unpaid volunteers. You can be one of them.

What does it take? Just a willingness to help. You don’t need a science background. As you can see below, we have lots of different jobs you can do.

Are you interested in helping? Then let us know by visiting our Volunteer Signup page and filling out the form.

Are you wondering where you should go on Fair Day, and when? Visit the When And Where page for answers to these questions.

Your rewards for volunteering at the Fair:

  • You’ll know that you’ve encouraged our young people to pursue their interests in science and engineering.
  • You’ll see some interesting science exhibits and talk to their enthusiastic creators.
  • You’ll have a reason to visit Lindale Mall on a March Saturday—for the whole day, if you want.
  • You’ll receive a pin with this year’s EISEF logo.
