2020 STEAM Fest Volunteers

2020 Rocky Mountain STEAM Fest

The Seventh Annual Rocky Mountain STEAM Fest is likely to be our biggest and most fantastic!

Last year, we had over 120 volunteers contribute more than 4000 hours to help us build this incredible community event dedicated to Science, Technology, Entrepreneurship, Arts and Making.

We hope you'll join us, too!  Sign up now to help with all the planning and building.  (You can also sign-up now to help on the days of the event!)

STEAM Fest Dates:
March 7th and 8th, 2020 at the Boulder County Fairgrounds (9595 Nelson Rd, Longmont)

And, we have really fun jobs starting today! You can help us hang posters, spread the word, recruit exhibitors – and so much more. Jobs include working from home with flexible hours – whatever you can do – from 4 hours to 40 – whatever you can contribute, we’ve got the perfect fit for you!

What are the perks of being a volunteer?

If you work at least one, four-hour shift, you’ll get:

  • Ticket for one person for the entire weekend of STEAM Fest Fun
  • An awesome STEAM Fest Volunteer T-shirt
  • A Goody Bag full of snacks and drinks
  • An awesome coupon for Rabbit Hole Recreation Services (Denver’s finest escape room!)
  • A certificate of volunteer hours (if requested)

Who can volunteer?

Anyone in middle school or older. Minors must be accompanied by an adult for volunteer check in.

I look forward to seeing you there!
