The Lawrence’s Prep Hub procures, prepares, organizes, stores, and distributes materials and equipment for a variety of educational science programs. We work with and support many groups and departments across the Lawrence, including Public Engagement, Community Outreach, Summer Camps, Teen Research Programs, and more. Our goal is to make sure our educators and facilitators have all the materials they need to deliver the very best programs possible!
Materials Prep Assistants work closely with other Prep Hub staff to prepare, set-up, clean-up, and organize materials for our science camps, classes, and other programs for children and families. Note that this is largely a behind-the-scenes role and does not usually involve interacting with science center visitors or students.
At least 8 hours per week (to be scheduled during business hours, Monday-Friday 9am-5:30pm) are required during the spring semester, up to a maximum of 19 hours per week.
Availability to continue working during UC Berkeley school breaks, and interest in continuing in the position in future semesters, is preferred.
Academic background, experience, or interest in science and/or education is helpful, but not required.
