We are looking for students to be Science Center Scholars, student helpers for our eight week summer STEM program.  Think “CIT” for summer programs.  


We are looking for Talcott alums, or students who have experience in a STEM team or related experience - FIRST, VEX, MathCounts, OM, etc..  


You would be assisting teachers at Talcott with either K-3 or Grade 4-8 courses.  We assign Scholars based on age, experience and expertise.

It’s best suited for current grade 9 or 10 students.  


It’s a mountaintop campus, with classes of 12 or fewer students.  


We can certify your volunteer work here for community service requirements.
