Are you interested in being a part of the Lowell Kinetic Sculpture race, but you don’t have time to build a machine or be part of a team? No problem! We’d love to have you.

LKSR is looking for volunteers in the following areas:

Sponsorship
We have created the sponsorship packet, but we need help getting the word out! Sponsorship volunteers will help us by contacting local businesses and networking to find companies that want to take part in making this event the best it can be. Previous experience is helpful, but not necessary. We’ll give you all the tools and show you how to use them.

Social Media
Do you use Instagram, Twitter or FaceBook already? Then this position may be for you! LKSR is seeking enthusiastic social media volunteers to help come up with, craft, and post engaging content for our social media outlets as well as our website and keep the buzz going!
