Is This Your Year to Inspire a Child?

Gary Krauss working with elementary school students

Working with elementary school students is rewarding to Gary Krauss, senior subcontracts specialist, Contracts and Acquisitions, because he can demonstrate that there are lots of career paths in science. Shown here with Myersville Elementary School fifth-graders, Krauss said, “I was never a science major and I let the kids know you don’t always have to work in a lab or wear a lab coat to contribute towards finding a cure for cancer. There are other administrative support roles that are crucial to the success of the team.”

The Elementary Outreach Program (EOP) is looking for volunteers for the 2013–2014 school year.

This program is designed to bring science into the classrooms of Frederick County students in grades 1 through 5. You’ll have a chance to work with small groups of children, presenting hands-on lessons that are coordinated with the school curriculum.

Volunteer teams in each grade are scheduled to visit four schools in Frederick County this year.
