Calling all rising 7th - 10th graders! Do you love playing with younger children? Interested in building leadership skills and working alongside Team Marbles to spark imagination, discovery and learning? Marbles Teen Play Corp participants playfully engage younger kids in science, art, creativity, physical activity, and hands-on learning in Marbles exhibits, programs, camps, events and in the community.
