Volunteer at ASF


To volunteer for other Science ATL initiatives, please visit Science ATL.

Join the CURIOUS CORPS, our army of amazing volunteers! Volunteers are needed for every event and in the weeks leading up to the Atlanta Science Festival. We will need greeters, tweeters, ushers, wayfinders, schleppers, lifters, marketers, and more. Regardless of your background, we would love for you to join our team and help make this festival a success. We will provide all volunteers with an exclusive pink CURIOUS CORPS t-shirt to keep and wear during your volunteer activities.

There are three opportunities with separate registration processes:

  1. General Volunteer – support ASF events before and during the Festival. Complete the form on this page.
  2. STEM Professionals – see callout box below and complete separate registration process.
  3. Youth Ambassadors – see callout box below and complete separate application process.

All volunteers (except Youth Ambassadors) must be at least 16 years old and provide their own transportation where necessary. To register a group of volunteers, complete the form and enter the name of your group. Questions? Contact [email protected].

Thank you for helping to make the Atlanta Science Festival a success!

STEM Professionals

Calling all scientists, engineers, technicians, faculty, grad students, post-docs, and everyone whose career is strongly tied to STEM knowledge and application! Would you like to inspire young people to address the challenges of the future through STEM understanding and careers? We invite you to visit a K-12 classroom during our Imagining the Future day on March 5, 2020 to discuss your career path, the problems you tackle, and what questions remain unanswered in your field. Registration is now closed. As a STEM professional, you can also exhibit at the Expo (closed), or volunteer as a Leadership Coach (still available) for middle/high school students in our Chief Science Officers program. Note: these programs have separate registration processes – see links above to register.


Registered volunteers should review the Curious Corps Manual and Webinar below to get oriented to the Festival and expectations for volunteers. Thank you for sharing your passion for science with Atlanta!

Youth Ambassadors

We’re looking for a group of enthusiastic student leaders in grades 6-12 to become ASF Youth Ambassadors! Ambassadors will represent Atlanta Science Festival in the community, sharing information about the Festival in schools and neighborhoods across metro Atlanta. The application is now closed.

Spread the Word

After you register, help us to spread the word about Atlanta Science Festival to teachers, parents, youth-serving organizations, community groups, PTA groups, college faculty and students, and STEM-related businesses. Share our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram posts, and convince friends, family members, and complete strangers to join the fun. Make sure you are subscribed to our newsletter and stay in touch!
