Gallery Interpreters are the heart of the science experience at TELUS World of Science – Edmonton. As an interpreter, you will catalyze our guests’ curiosities and spark a lifelong love of science for many of our guests. By facilitating hands-on experiences, you will encourage them to explore, be curious, solve problems, ask questions, and discover new things.
In S.P.A.C.E. (Stars, Planets, Astronauts, Comets, etc.). you will take guests to the edge of the known universe. Working in the Command Centre, you will teach guests how to identify a meteorite, launch marbles into a gravity well, launch rockets, and much more. This is an ideal landing spot for a volunteer seeking a stellar experience.
Your demonstrated enthusiasm, strong communication skills and engaging personality will highlight the fun of science and enhance our guests’ learning experience. All applicants must be 15 years of age or older with grade 9 science. Volunteer staff are requested to commit to one, 3-5 hour shift per week over a period of three months, or the equivalent of 40 hours.
• Weekend Shifts (Sat, Sun, & Holidays): 10:00 am – 1:30 pm OR 1:30 pm – 5:00 pm
