General Visitors

If you are interested in participating in EYU as a visitor, there are no sign-ups or tickets required. This is a FREE event for visitors of all ages and scientific backgrounds. Planetarium tickets, event maps, and passports will be available at the Info Booth from 12-5 PM. Passports completed by finding the special booths before 5PM can be exchanged for a prize!

Volunteers

If you enjoy teaching and interacting with children, want more outreach experience, or simply would like to help out with this community event, consider volunteering at EYU! All volunteers must sign up for a minimum of 3 hours, and will receive a free T-shirt and lunch. Be sure to commit to your volunteer time after you sign up, as we count each person carefully to make sure all the booths have enough volunteers. Volunteers will be able to select their top three preferences for volunteering at the science booths, planetarium, or organizing tents.
