STEAM Volunteers


 
Software engineer speaking to sixth grade students about his fieldAs an AdvancED STEAM school, Mountain View is interested in creating a database of community members who work in STEAM fields - Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics - who would be willing to share their experiences, expertise, and career advice with our PreK-8th grade students.  

Mountain View's Signature Focus: S.T.E.A.M. Through Life focuses on the career pathways that are available to students through STEAM Career and Technical Education pathways.  These include engineering, digital communications - including graphic design or computer animation - and business & marketing - including sales.  We would love for our students to engage with members of the community who work in any of these fields.  

What might a STEAM volunteer do?  Some examples may be: 
 
  • Presenting to a class or grade level about your experiences in your career field
     
  • Presenting to a class or grade level about career pathways and options in your field
     
  • Assisting a class or grade level with carrying out a hands-on project related to your field
     
  • Assisting a teacher to design a hands-on project or to evaluate student projects as an expert in the field
     
  • Helping to arrange a field trip relating to your career field for a grade level or group of students 
     
  • Participating in one of Mountain View's STEAM events
     
  • Or perhaps you have other great ideas as to how you can help our students explore your field - we would love to hear them!

If you are interested in being in our database, so that teachers can reach out to you, you can either print the volunteer flyer below return the completed form to the main office, or you can complete the online volunteer interest form.  

We value our partnerships with the Dysart high school Career and Technical Education programs, West-MEC, the Arizona Science Center, the Arizona Technology Council Foundation, and AdvancED.  We would love to add your expertise and experience to our resources so our students have the best educational experiences possible.
