Durham Museum seeking Mindbender Masters

Apr 18, 2012


Area students and community volunteers have an opportunity to become “Mindbender Masters” through the Durham Museum’s Good Works Program. 

The program is a service-based initiative that will train participants for the Museum’s summer exhibition, Mindbender Mansion. Volunteers or “Mindbender Masters” will guide visitors through the exhibition, helping them complete brainteasers and challenges.

Durham Museum spokeswoman Shawna Forsberg says the Good Works Program is an excellent opportunity for students who are looking to fulfill service learning requirements, gain experience working with the public and share their academic talents with others.

Participants will complete a training and orientation session. They’ll receive a summer membership to the museum, and also can participate in a career fair focused on math, science, education, and related fields.

An informational meeting is scheduled for April 22, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m.  More information is available at
