    If you know a local kid, between the ages of four and eight, who is looking for a job, here’s good news.

    The Kentucky Science Center is looking for a few good kids for its Curious Kids Board. Members will be called upon to lead the press event to announce the opening of the new Science in Play exhibit, attend other events and be a great ambassador for the center. The appointment will last for one year, and board members will receive lifetime memberships to the center.

    “These trailblazing little scientists will join us in kicking the tires on new programs, spit-balling fresh ideas and innovations, critiquing offerings and materials specifically designed to serve our early childhood audience,” said Joanna Haas, executive director at Kentucky Science Center, in a statement. “Over their one-year term, our Curious Kids Board will be essential to the strength of Science in Play and its impact on families across the Commonwealth.”

    Curious Kids board members will:

    Act as an ambassador for Science in Play and Kentucky Science Center.
    Do Science – EVERYWHERE! Ask questions, cultivate curiosity, think creatively, and experiment! Build buzz by telling everyone they know about Kentucky Science Center’s Science in Play permanent exhibit.
    Attend Science in Play press event on July 2, 2015 at 10:00 A.M. and be available to rehearse the day prior.
    Participate in special events and activities after opening day as needed, and commit to at least six “play program review” sessions during the year with an accompanying adult.
    Be able to speak clearly.
    Be able to understand and follow directions well.
    Most importantly, have fun, learn and PLAY!

    Kids can apply by submitting a 60-second video showing why they want to join the board. The deadline is April 30, 2015. Interviews will be scheduled in May.

    The Kentucky Science Center is located at 727 West Main Street.
