Durham - Durham Ambassadors



Engineering Outreach


Ambassadors in Action The Durham School Student Ambassador Outreach Program is a student-led initiative to promote architectural engineering, construction engineering, and construction management among high school students.
Student representatives visit local and regional high schools, everywhere from Omaha to Kansas and beyond. Interactive presentations are given about these engineering fields and the opportunities each program presents. As a result, high school students’ eyes are opened to the many exciting options of an AE, ConE, or CM degree while Ambassadors show that engineering degrees are feasible (and enjoyable!) and involve more than simply drafting or construction work.
Our Durham Ambassadors are students who enjoy talking with high school students while answering questions, providing advice, and sharing their passions about their majors. The presentations are strictly limited to engineering outreach and are not recuitment based. The presentations are interactive and meant to serve as a bridge between classroom theory and the application of math, science, and communication skills in the engineering career field.
If you are a high school teacher in the subjects of math, physical science or industrial technology, or you are a career guidance counselor, and wish to schedule a presentation, contact Brett Meyer: bmeyer5@unl.edu, (402) 554-2089. We look forward to hearing from you.
