STEM Ambassadors provide a window into the vast potential of the STEM fields. By providing dynamic, hands-on learning, STEM Ambassadors will inspire and create enthusiasm for STEM subjects. This program will build on the interest sparked in the classroom (or afterschool program) and help middle and high school students see themselves as scientists (or engineers, etc.) while also building mentorship and a connection to college students and potentially, to UVM faculty. Continued on-campus opportunities will engage Vermont youth with UVM and connect them with UVM STEM resources, for now and for their post-secondary planning. UVM students will have the opportunity to share knowledge they are learning in their respective majors and will gain valuable skills in collaboration, presentation, facilitation, and communication.
