Thursday, April 6: Jordan Intermediate & Wilder Intermediate Schools- Cibolo, TX 78108

Unique Event Planning Opportunity:

Ever wonder what it takes to make an event a success? Would you like to be a part of planning a successful event?

The Friends of the Las Palmas Library has asked the VBTA to help plan, organize and support a "Science Day" event.

 As Grad students/Post Docs you will be able to take part in planning, organizing and/or supporting this event from the bottom up.

The event should last about three to four hours and The Friends of the Las Palmas Library needs help in making it happen.

Not only is this event a great way to reach underprivileged and at-risk community and get them interested in science but would also be a great chance for you to participate in community enrichment, working with a non-profit group and bolster your CV.

Don't have a lot of time or experience but would still like to participate?

Help in any capacity will be accepted and no experience needed- just a willingness to make lives better.

Setting up a meeting with The Friends of the Las Palmas Library group is in the works and will include anyone who is interested in participating.

If you are interested in being part of any of these opportunities or if you have any questions, please don't hesitate in contacting Alex Kirkpatrick at kirkpatricka@UTHSCSA.edu
