PTOS Education Committee is calling for volunteers!


SPECO, RESET and PTOS are teaming up once again to bring you the chance to plan, organize and perform hands-on science experiments with local elementary school students in an in-person format this school year! This is a great chance to give back to our local communities.


What’s RESET?

  • RESET stands for Raising Excitement for Science, Engineering and Technology.
  • RESET is a successful, educational nonprofit serving the Washington, DC metro area since 1988. Through hands-on science lessons, interactive experiments, and related field trips, RESET volunteers teach children in ways that are engaging, relevant, and fun, helping them to make important connections between life and learning.


What are the requirements?

  • Meet once per month to plan and organize a specific science experiment.
  • Pull together materials for the science experiment.
  • Travel to a local elementary school in Annandale, VA.
  • Perform the science experiment with the students at the school.
  • Watch the student’s happy faces when the light bulb turns on!


What’s the time commitment?

  • Approximately 4-5 hours per month.


This year, SPECO is excited to work with the Canterbury Woods Elementary School located in Annandale, VA.  Canterbury Woods Elementary is a public school that focuses on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) and Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) learning.  We engage with students by teaching labs, which they perform, such as measuring wind, understanding air pressure and flight, generating magnetism, creating batteries, and building electrical circuits.


There is no Other Time available for these meetings or events.


If you’re interested in volunteering, please contact Arthur Hall.

If you have questions regarding PTOS, please contact Cathy Loikith.

If you have suggestions for future education initiatives, please reach out to the SPECO Education Committee.
