We are still hoping to recruit more parent volunteers to teach classes!
Do you love science? Do you love working with kids?  Then WE NEED YOU!  Please consider volunteering to teach a LAB39 course for the D39 Educational Foundation!  All instructors will receive one free class for a student in their household as a small token of appreciation for their time. 
If interested, please complete this survey to indicate which courses might be of interest to you, and what days/times you are available.
