  • Inform guests about Maryland Science Center rules, exhibits, activities, etc.

  • Friendly and conversant with guests and able to handle various size groups
  • Previous teaching or stage experience a plus, but not required

Adult (21+) events take place on Friday nights once a month, year round. Shifts are typically available from 6:30-10:30pm.
