Meet our Science Ambassadors

Our Science Ambassadors are senior undergraduate and graduate students studying science, engineering, agriculture and bioresources, and health sciences. They have strong academic backgrounds, excellent communication skills, and loads of enthusiasm for hands-on science to share with teachers and youth!

"Some scientists are among the most awestruck witnesses to
the glories of the unfolding universe and among its most eloquent guides."
- John Mohawk (Sotsisiwah) Iroquois Elder and senior Smithsonian Scholar
