Volunteer as a Coach
Thank you for your interest in coaching our BMMS Science Olympians! Our coaching team consists of parent volunteers and high school students. There is no special education required. Our adult coaches are excited to offer this opportunity to our students, and interested in learning more about these subjects themselves. As former BMMS Science Olympians, our high school student coaches are interested in sharing their acquired knowledge and skills with current BMMS students. They’re also inspired to give back to their former school. These student coaches bring with them a unique perspective because of their prior Science Olympiad experiences. We encourage our former BMMS SO students to join our SO coaching team.
