Volunteers will be asked to visit K-12 classrooms in their region or connect with classrooms virtually to act as subject-matter experts. Specific topics will relate to the science or math curriculum students are learning in school, but will vary based on the requests we receive. Successful applicants can be located anywhere in Alberta.
