Teen Advisory Board
Arizona Science Center’s Teen Advisory Board works closely with the Center’s leadership team to develop, test, and implement content, programs, and special events targeted to teens ages 12-18. Board Members, selected through an application and interview process, are an important asset of the Science Center as we are uniquely positioned to inspire teens to engage in science, and perhaps even consider a STEM-related career.
Not only do board members have a real impact on the Center’s engagement with the teen audience, but they also gain experience serving on the board of a leading cultural institution. Throughout the year-long commitment, the members collaborate, not only with Arizona Science Center staff but also with community partners in the planning and implementation of programs and events for teens.
Since the inception in 2017, Arizona Science Center’s Teen Advisory Board has engaged more than 4,283youth, ages 13-18-year-olds, in hands-on STEM learning opportunities.
