Muzeiko is the biggest science center for children in Eastern Europe. With its more than over 130 interactive exhibitions, Muzeiko is designed to inspire children to learn, discover and explore while spending time with their families and educators.
We offer 3 volunteers’ positions for English speaking foreigners.

Minimum length of volunteering: once a week for one month.
Contact person: Zdravka@muzeiko.bg
Requirement: mainly students (preferably experienced in working with children and using tools)
Activities: working with different tools, e.g. screwdrivers, linoleum knives, Dremmel type of tool and hot glue gun. The children there are experimenting with materials, learning how to use the tools and in the end they can create/assemble/disassemble something. The volunteers need to be patient, skillful and be able to assist children of various ages and abilities with making their projects. There may also be a need to prepare materials for the day so we can ease the children in their work. We are open for the volunteers to give ideas and inspiration in our work and to propose projects because this workshop is for people, who love to invent and create and aren’t afraid of failure.
Minimum length of volunteering: Our desire is to create a community between the volunteers and some of them are with us for years. So we would like to have volunteers on a regular basis (depending on their availability).
