  • Joining other MFS and CU Boulder students involved in the Museum Club to explore museums and museum work outside of the classroom
  • Mentoring middle school girls in science through Girls At the Museum Exploring Science (GAMES)
  • Volunteering at one of more than 20 local museums and parks
  • Collaborating with other CU museums, galleries, and libraries
  • Working as a graduate assistant in collections, museum education, or other areas of the CU Museum
  • Conducting research in science or museum studies
  • Taking cognate courses in any of the university's departments
