Volunteer Opportunities

We are looking for volunteers to help pass out brochures at the Thanksgiving Day Parade on November 22. We ask that volunteers visit our office in Bingham Farms, so that you can pick up brochures and other materials, and we can go over the details of the day. 

We are still looking for help entering DCP applications into our system. Our office is open between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Monday-Friday.

Fun Internet Resources


Good internet resources about science for teachers, parents and kids can be hard to come by. To make it easier for people to find the information they need for school or for a rainy afternoon, the Verizon Foundation has funded "Thinkfinity", a collection of websites that includes Science Netlinks.

This site, sponsored by the American Academy for the Advancement of Science, provides lesson plans, activity ideas, and summaries of breaking discoveries in science and technology. Visit to check out this cool site!
