The Perot Museum of Nature and Science exists to inspire minds through nature and science. The Museum offers hands-on ways to learn about scientific evidence, mathematical concepts, and natural history and will profoundly affect what and how our guests experience science and nature.
The Discovery Corps Camp Assistant program for teens exists to foster student interest in science, nature, and technology by placing exceptional STEM-minded teens in areas where they can interact with and teach Museum guests and camp children. Applications for the 2020 Discovery Corps program are now open!
Discovery Corps interview dates and program placements fill rapidly. Please keep in mind that interview spots are limited and function on a first come, first serve basis. Submitting a Discovery Corps application does not guarantee an interview.
Teens must complete the Discovery Corps Camp Assistant program prior to becoming a year-round volunteer.
The Perot Museum is a certifying organization of the Presidents Volunteer Service Award, a federally recognized award. Those that achieve the award through service at the Perot Museum receive an official recognition pin, certificate, Perot Museum fleece and a letter from the sitting President of the United States, at a special event in January.
