Volunteering at Thinktank
Volunteers at Thinktank give their time to help run events, improve the visitor experience, promote our work and activities, improve our documentation and by doing invaluable research. This is another one of our sites with an incredibly broad range of volunteering opportunities.
If you work in STEM (Science/Technology/Engineering/Mathematics) subjects, heritage or culture, and would like to work with us on public engagement activities at Thinktank to share your work or research then perhaps you’ll be interested in finding out more about our “Meet the Expert” programme.
Over the past years one of our biggest focuses has been the Natural Science collections and we've had a small dedicated team of specialists generously giving their time to improving the documentation of this collection. Without these volunteers this work simply wouldn't be done – they are making huge improvements which will be appreciated for many years to come.
Industrial Heritage Interpreters volunteer their time helping visitors enjoy and learn from the Science and Industry Collection on display at Thinktank. From the steam engines to the Spitfire, our dedicated team are ready to chat to visitors and often have handling objects or images ready to help explain tricky engineering concepts. With backgrounds in science, engineering or heritage the Interpreters are a much valued part of the visitor experience on offer at the museum.
Thinktank is open all year round. See current Volunteer Opportunities at Birmingham Museums.
