Volunteers for CoCoMad

This summer BrumSciComm will be bringing science to CoCoMad, a community arts festival in Cotteridge Park. This is the 22nd year of the festival, run by the Friends of Cotteridge Park. It is being held on Saturday 7th July.

We are looking for volunteers to help us run science activities as part of the festival. The activities we are running includes science busking, where you will roam the festival with short, fun, intriguing demos and activities in the science tent, where we will be putting on longer hands on activities for children and families. We will be running these activities from 12pm and 7 pm on the day. It would be great if we can have you all day, but if you can’t commit to all of it that’s not a problem.

Please note that volunteers would ideally need to be a STEM Ambassador as they have public liability cover.

We will provide all the equipment for the activities and training on how to do them. Training will be provided from 6 pm and 8 pm on Tuesday 3rd July at the University of Birmingham. Therefore if you aren’t very experienced in delivering science activities, don’t worry – we are here to help you!

If you would like to sign up to volunteer, you can get in touch with Sarah on Please let her know what hours you can spare on the 7th July and if you can attend the training session. You can also get in touch with her if you have any questions.
