Other Opportunities

What are they?
Salk Education Outreach is often asked to assist with special school groups who are coming to the Salk campus, as well as helping students connect to scientists for school projects. We often need speakers and panelists for student and/or teacher groups, as well as people willing to take small groups to their labs for special event tours. We also help facilitate connecting students who are interested in volunteering in labs for their required school internships with Salk scientists. Most of these volunteer opportunities happen right here at Salk so no travel!
