Request a Volunteer

The Women in Engineering Program supports connecting student volunteers from the Cockrell School of Engineering and STEM professionals from the Central Texas community (and beyond) to opportunities in the community.

Request Volunteers for Events

To request volunteers for events such as science fairs, career days, or competitions, we are utilizing the Texas STEM Connections database. This is a single portal for educators and community members to request STEM students and professionals to volunteer for virtual or in-person opportunities to inspire K-20 students about STEM!

STEPS TO GET INVOLVED:

Sign up to be a STEM Volunteer:

Texas STEM Connections is a web-based tool using the Nepris platform that makes it easy for STEM professionals to connect with K-20 educators, classrooms, out of school time programs, and other volunteer opportunities.

    • Create a profile (add details to your profile through the account settings), and browse the requests for volunteers to find a classroom visit request that meets your interests and availability.
    • Watch your email and/or your Dashboard in Texas STEM Connections once you’ve expressed interest in a volunteer request and let the system walk you through the process of confirming.
    • Use the online help or more detailed volunteer instructions to help create your profile, set up your account settings and affiliations, and get connected to volunteer opportunities.
