A Volunteer Opportunity For You
If you click here, you can visit the Mayo Eugenio Litta Children's Hospital.

The EMSP board has done some ground work to provide the opportunity for you to be a volunteer!

June 4, 2009 (Thursday)
Time: 1:30pm-3:00pm
Where: St. Marys, 3rd floor
What: An "Oobleck" science experiment!
Who: Conducted by the child patients, guided by Winona State University Rochester Elementary Ed. students
Why: Why not? We'd like to practice our teaching skills, children within the hospital could use a educational/fun/out -of-the-norm experience, and by working together as a team we can all do this!

Please check back here for more information...if you are interested in helping out or being involved in anyway (whether you can show up that day or not) please email

Thank you!
