Get Involved

Classes and student organizations within The College of Natural Sciences host many volunteer events to support local schools. Events include discovery expeditions to The University of Texas at Austin, Science Olympics at local schools, after-school clubs and special STEM events. New volunteer opportunities are posted each semester on this page. These opportunities are flexible and designed to work with your availability. Please email UTeach.Outreach@austin.utexas.edu if you are interested in getting involved!

UTeach Outreach offers many opportunities for UT students, faculty, staff and members of the community to get involved and help inspire the next generation to take an active interest in science. There are volunteer and career opportunities to fit with any schedule. Individuals interested in making a difference in a student’s learning experience should look at some of our opportunities below:

We have many science-focused field trips for students every month as well as hands-on learning events for the community.
