As science and technology centers and museums re-open and plan for re-opening, they are navigating a number of challenges that require thoughtful consideration and planning. ASTC is hosting this series of discussions to support peer-to-peer sharing around timely topics.
This peer-to-peer discussion explored how science centers and museums are engaging volunteers in operations, education, fundraising, and other ways during COVID-19.
Presented with the ASTC Volunteer Managers Community.
Watch video of volunteer-program case studies that were shared at the beginning of this event:
“Design thinking” provides structure to our peer discussions, and can help us better understand these challenges, explore them in creative ways, and create solutions that we can test in real time. While these are uncharted waters, we can welcome these challenges, remain flexible with our ideas and solutions, and open to embracing failures, which can ultimately lead us to new possibilities to better support the safety of our communities, internally and externally.
