NNSS Student Programs interns volunteered at the DISCOVERY Children’s Museum June 28, demonstrating their commitment to community involvement while representing the NNSS. Their hard work and efforts benefit the museum’s upcoming events, including Independence Day and Superhero Day.

The group of 12 interns participated in a variety of different preparation activities, including die cutting, sorting and packaging different materials, and cleaning.

“Nevada has given so much to the NNSS,” said Operations Assurance intern Zac Bryner. “It’s important for us to give back where and how we can, especially to the kids who are interested in STEM concepts, so I’m happy the Student Programs allowed us the opportunity to participate.”

After volunteering, interns were offered a backstage tour of the museum, where they got to see how their efforts will directly impact children.

The NNSS is a proud sponsor of the NNSS Science Bench at the museum, where daily demonstrations and experiments are conducted to inspire STEM discoveries. The non-profit organization has been welcoming families and tourists for more than 33 years, providing hands-on educational experiences that foster creativity and learning.
