The U of S Science Ambassador Program, offered through the Office of Science Outreach, College of Arts & Science, pairs senior university STEM students (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) with northern Aboriginal community schools to support creative and culturally relevant science education opportunities each spring.

Our science ambassadors are hosted in partner communities for four to six weeks, working with teachers to develop and facilitate engaging, hands-on science learning opportunities.
