What do the UConn Engineering Ambassadors Do?
By Nicole Piscopo
Engineering Ambassadors is an outreach program designed to inform minorities of all ages of the numerous exciting opportunities that the many fields of engineering have to offer. The program partakes in weekly visits to elementary schools, middle schools, and high schools across the state performing stimulating experiments with students and offering presentations on what life is like as an engineer at UConn. Engineering Ambassadors also holds myriad events on campus to engage the local community in the fields of science and engineering. The organization additionally partakes in community service and is in charge of the Annual Regional Science Bowl for high school students. Some of the most recent ventures include hosting Big Brother Big Sisters Exploring Math Science and Engineering Day on campus and running events for National Engineers Week across campus.
