As stated in our mission statement, Engineering Ambassadors is a network of college students who are dedicated to inspiring the next generation of engineers. We inspire the next generation through running and volunteering at events that promote STEM. All of our volunteers are hardworking students and members who dedicate their time at these events to help spread EA’s message. We work with students from elementary to high school.
Open House (Fall ’17)
Open House is one of the largest EA events. As an opportunity to engage with hundreds of prospective students and their families, it is our pleasure to present the UConn School of Engineering. High school students and their families are given an amphitheater presentation by our Associate Dean, Prof. Daniel Burkey, about UConn Engineering as a whole. We then lead tours specific to major taking students through research labs, classrooms, and small group Q&A’s with current students within a specific major. All three branches of EA come together in a prideful display of what we do here on a daily basis, and to have some fun encouraging prospective students to pursue their education as passionately as we do here at UConn.
STEM Night (Fall’17)
STEM Night is our largest event of the academic year. This fall we welcomed 300+ elementary and middle school students and families to the Connecticut Science Center in Hartford for a night of demonstrations and fun with all of our EA members. We would like to very graciously thank the CT Science Center for hosting us for the third year in a row. With exclusive access to the exhibition floors of the Science Center, students are free to roam each of the rooms and are greeted by EA members engaging with them through the Science Center exhibits and our own demonstrations such as Oobleck Speaker, Ruben’s Tube, Elephant’s toothpaste and dozens more!
