Each day we are looking for volunteers who have a positive, friendly attitude, and can be focused, and work both independently and in efficient teams to execute assignments. You will likely be on your feet a lot, surrounded by fascinating and curious people, machines, and projects. Volunteers will need to pass a background check prior to the event.
