David Garbe (CAMB alum and Outreach Educator for nonprofit Pennsylvania Society for Biomedical Research) invites BGS students to volunteer. More info below:
“PSBR was established in 1990 with the goal of educating K-16 students about the importance and value of biomedical research, including the role of animals in that research. We currently offer outreach and educational programs to schools throughout Pennsylvania, Delaware, and West Virginia. You can find information describing many of our programs here on our website (http://www.psbr.org/programs-18) as well as educational materials here (http://www.psbr.org/resources-53). We are on a mission to build outside relationships that support our work in hopes of developing additional programs, content, and digital media to share our message.
Students who are interested in community science outreach might love to participate in a PSBR-sponsored activity. Additionally, students with an interest in informal science instruction might like to design a new biomedical-related program or activity that could be adapted for use throughout the commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Other ideas might involve assisting in the development of 1) an informal “coffeehouse” science seminar series for the general public or 2) a summer camp for local underserved students, or 3) creating a video/phone app to support our mission. These are just a few examples!”
