Tinker Tank Maker in Residence
The Maker in Residence volunteer position at Pacific Science Center’s Tinker Tank is a unique, open-ended role for people with a wide variety of interests including engineering, hardware development, education, and the “Maker Movement”. Akin to an Artist in Residency program, the Maker in Residence position provides space and materials to support individuals looking to develop, expand, and share their skills in science, technology, engineering, design, and tinkering. It is also intended to demonstrate to visitors and volunteers vast possibilities within engineering and the Maker Movement and inspire folks to participate. The Maker in Residence builds, demonstrates, and engages visitors in small-scale prototyping, designing, fabricating, and all forms of making and tinkering. Ideal candidates are able to select, create, and discuss new or existing projects with the public, are very comfortable facilitating exploration with people of all ages and backgrounds, and are flexible with frequent adjustments in setting and surroundings as Tinker Tank is a very dynamic physical space. We are looking for someone who can become a recurring and expected presence in our space, and will therefore give preference to someone who can commit to volunteering a four-hour shift every week for the duration of the position, April-August 2018.
