TRIUMF Community Announcements: Get involved! Re. Opportunities to share
the wonder of what we do with the broader public

TRIUMF is participating in Science World's Around the Dome, a free public
festival, and are recruiting volunteers from across the lab to commit to
4-hour shifts.

There are opportunities for everyone across the lab to get involved. Event
volunteers can take on various responsibilities ranging from greeters to
hands-on demo operators. Each volunteer will be set-up for success, given
instructions on their responsibilities, supported by their fellow TRIUMF
team members, and provided with feedback so they can hone their skills
(can focus this for those who are particularly interested in developing a
specific science communication or outreach skill - so a great professional
development opportunity!). And there's more (BONUS!): volunteers will
receive a TRIUMF t-shirt, and will be provided with lunch while
volunteering.

Some details:
