This is a new public thread since some of our volunteers are not FamiLAB members. I'll update this top post with more information as we get it.
Volunteer signup - We have a good crew at this point, but if you are interested and haven't signed up, post below or contact me.
Parking - AWAITING INFO; we are assuming that you will park in the parking garage (capacity?); you may have to pay to park
Entry - There will be a line for attendees and a line for exhibitors. Please use the exhibitor line, explain to them that you are a FamiLAB volunteer. They will check you in and IIRC, give you a wristband. Please be respectful and don't bring your entire family into the event as "volunteers". VOLUNTEER ADMISSION DOES NOT INCLUDE STAR WARS.
Classroom - we are in the INQUIRY classroom. The classrooms are not easy to find - suggest asking the person who checks you in for directions if there is not good signage. We have room for instruction space and will be setting up small projects for show & tell, etc. We have a SMALL locking space in inquiry to store small bags, etc. Please be respectful of our instructors - if class is going on, and you need to have a conversation, etc. please walk outside.
Food - Subway onsite, expecting lines. You are welcome to bring food, but please be discrete - don't bring a big cooler through the OSC lobby.
Dress code - OSC is typically very cold, but we aren't quite sure what to expect. I'll be in jeans and a geeky t-shirt of some kind (FamiLAB, Maker Faire, Tesla, Radio Shack) - and I'll likely have a long sleeve shirt handy just in case it is cold. If you have a FamiLAB name badge, OMMF laminate, etc - feel free to wear it
Friday will be chaos while we do the first runs of new classes, figure out the logistics with the science center, etc. We need both your assistance AND your patience. If we don't have a specific task for you, please interact with the students, their friends / parents, talk about the lab, mention the next open house, upcoming classes, give them a card or a sticker, etc.
More soon, please post questions below.
