  • The Elementary Outreach Program is looking for volunteers!

    The program is supported by the NCI-Frederick and its' support contractors, SAIC-Frederick, WISCO, DMS, and Charles River. USAMRMC Fort Detrick has joined our program as well. Please consult with your supervisor for prior approval.

    The time commitment involved is minimal -- usually 1/2 hour for training and a minimum two-day teaching commitment (2-4 hours per day) throughout the school year. The payback you will receive is the smiles on the faces of the children when they get to do their experiments with "real scientists.” All of our volunteers, no matter what their positions, are "real scientists" while in the classroom with these children.

    If you would like to participate and make a difference in a child's school experience and get them excited about SCIENCE, please sign up on the web site at http://ncifrederick.cancer.gov/Programs/General/EOP/Volunteer.aspx.

    Please identify which grade level team(s) you would like to join. The Elementary Outreach Program reaches students in grades one through five. If you are uncertain of which grade level you would be comfortable with, please don't choose a grade. Once your registration is received, you will be contacted by the Coordinator or Team Leader with further information.

    Thanks for volunteering! You will be an invaluable resource back to the community.


  • The USAMRMC Fort Detrick Gains in the Education of Mathematics and Science (GEMS) program is seeking Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) to assist in training the college age near peer mentors. The GEMS program is an extracurricular STEM education program that enables students from elementary school to high school to experience science in a real laboratory setting during the summer. The USAMRMC Fort Detrick GEMS program is held off post at Hood College.

    As a SME you will impact the program by providing valuable skills and training to the near peer mentors, whom will in turn pass those techniques to the student interns. A typical SME volunteer is asked to commit at least one hour of their time during training weeks.

    The 2015 Training Week dates are: June 15th-19th and July 13th-17th at Hood College (401 Rosemont Ave Frederick, MD 21701).

    The GEMS program also seeks to have professional scientists, doctors, programmers, and engineers to speak about their careers.
