Here at Virginia Tech we have a graduate program called "Citizen Scholars". Graduate students from across the campus including Forestry, Chemistry, and Sociology Departments have take part in the program. Participants take academic excellence to the next level by using the knowledge they gained in academia and using it in real world settings while volunteering their time. These graduate students are "Citizen-Scholars" interested in, "Serving the community, the state, the nation, and the world..." The program is a part of the Transformative Graduate Education initiative of the Graduate School at Virginia Tech.
For Kids' Tech University the Graduate Citizen Scholars will be helping with logistics of the program during the day events. They will be interacting with the kids by explaining their research to them and telling them all about what it's like to be a student at Virginia Tech.
