The calendar below lists dates where volunteer groups are unavailable to participate in outreach events. If you are applying for an outreach visit to your school, please do not request any dates marked “unavailable”. Please note, that just because a date isn’t listed as unavailable, that does not guarantee availability. After you submit your application, we will check with our volunteers and get back to you regarding our availability and scheduling options.
The science outreach committee meets on the first Wednesday of every month to schedule upcoming outreach visits. If you would like your application to be considered during a given month’s meeting, please submit your application by 5pm PST the day before. Applicants who submit their request by this deadline should hear back from the committee within 5-7 business days after the committee meeting. Applications that are not submitted by the deadline will be reviewed the following month. Please note that submitting an application by the deadline does not guarantee our availability. We do our best to accommodate requests, but we routinely receive more applications than we can fulfill.
Deadlines for 2016: January 5, February 2, March 1, April 5, May 3, June 7, July 5, August 2, September 6, October 4, November 1, December 6
