Saints Science Ambassador Program

The Saints Science Ambassador Program brings together science majors and science faculty to develop learning experiences that engage middle school students.

Within the Saints Science Ambassador Program, undergraduate science majors visit middle school classrooms to conduct inquiry-based science experiences for students in grades 6-8.

The program aims to help middle school students envision themselves continuing as students of science, to provide an authentic setting in which college science majors have the opportunity to deepen, demonstrate and communicate their knowledge and understanding of fundamental science concepts, and to provide science faculty a context for them and undergraduate science majors to collaborate and create experiences for middle school students.
