Power the S.T.E.A.M. Zone for Senator Mitchell's Christmas in July

Help power the Girls in Tech LA and Iridescent LA S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Tech, Engineering, Arts, Math) Zone for Senator Holly J. Mitchell's 4th Annual Christmas in July!

NOTE: Please add your contact info to the volunteer list via this form:

This way we can contact you with any important updates prior to the event.

The Senator is interested in serving low-income families and children during the summer months when there are not as many free opportunities. She is also interested in continuing the theme of literacy, education and wellness. 

Last year, they served 150 families across the district and hope to do the same this year. In the past years, there have been reading, fun & fit, environmental, and health zones. 

This year, Girls in Tech LA has been invited to participate and host a hands-on STEAM activity booth to encourage girls to explore and pursue careers in STEAM.

 Come join us as a volunteer! 

There will be a webinar training orientation prior to the event so you will know what to expect.

When: 6:00-7:00 pm Wed. July 16

Where: Google Hangout OR In person at the Iridescent Studio

You'll need to register so we can contact you personally with either a Google Hangout invite OR the address if you want to attend live.

We will be building a mechanical theater from straws and things, which is a beginning robotics program to inspire kids to tinker.

Everyone is invited to the training whether you are able to volunteer on Saturday or not. We will be limited on space, so volunteers get top priority, and then it's on a first come first serve basis.



We will be having two shifts: 9:00 - 11:30 // 11:30 - 2:00 but you are also welcome to stay for the entire event.

Note: if you have any volunteer-related questions, please post them here in the Meetup Forum or send an email to [masked]. 

The contact number / email above are for general inquiries about the overall event and to nominate families to attend, but they will not have information specific to volunteering for our STEAM zone.

    I'm definitely interested in volunteering, but live in Santa Monica/West LA area and don't have a car. If someone would be able to help with transportation I'm definitely in! Otherwise I can't commit 100%. Let me know!
