Being a Cell EXPLORERS volunteer
Training for Cell EXPLORERS volunteers
So you now know a little bit about what Cell EXPLORERS is and what we are trying to achieve.
Cell EXPLORERS volunteers are the heart and soul of our programme - without you we would not exist. We call our volunteers explainers. This module will explain what is involved in being a Cell EXPLORERS explainer, provide you with some basics in science communication, and take you through some importance aspects of child protection and safeguarding.
After completing this module you will be asked to fill out a volunteer enrollment form. That will make you an official volunteer!
We recommend you complete these modules on a computer (e.g. desktop/laptop) and not a tablet or mobile device.
