STEM Ambassador Project
Upcoming 2023 - 2024 Project
Are you a 6th-12th grade student not only interested in learning about STEM and also ready to take on a leadership and civic engagement role in your community by sharing what you have learned with peers and younger youth? Become a STEM Ambassador, receive training in STEM activities, leadership and civic engagement and make a difference in your community! The STEM Ambassador Project is STEM Leadership through Community Outreach. STEM Ambassadors will learn new STEM activities, leadership and community outreach engagement skills. Become a STEM ambassador and share your STEM skills and enthusiasm with others throughout your county and community. STEM Ambassadors will attend zoom meetings, training sessions and team building activities along with other STEM Ambassadors from counties and Federally Recognized Tribal Extension Program (FRTEP) across the state.
The Third year STEM Ambassador Project recruited teens from the Tech Changemakers and the Space Mission Command Project.
The Second year STEM Ambassador Project recruited teens from the Tech Change Makers Project.
This was the First year of the STEM Ambassador Project launched in conjunction with the Ag Innovators Experience (AIE) project. Ambassadors received training on building leadership and civic engagement skills as well as focussed on the AIE curriculum "Curbing our Carbon Appetite Challenge". STEM Ambassadors participated in a series of four workshop sessions via zoom on Saturdays. Once STEM Ambassadors were trained they coordinated with county 4-H Agents to deliver one-hour presentations on AIE "Curbing Our Carbon Footprint" curriculum in their county/communities.
