Engineering Ambassador Network

Below are the engineering presentations we use in the classrooms. Each presentation is accompanied by a hands-on activity.
  • An Ocean of Possibility: Electricity from Wave Energy
  • Don't Skip a Beat: Pacemakers Engineered
  • Engineering Floats: Buoyancy and Boats
  • Get it Wright: An Intro to Flight
  • Making a Clean Living: Engineering Soap
  • Running Scarce: Water Cleansing
  • The Future Is Now: 3D Printing
  • Engineering the Human Body: Tissue Engineering

Our Mission

It is our PASSION to break-down the conventional ideas surrounding science, technology, engineering and math. We CHALLENGE learners in grades K through 12 to dream of a better world and we motivate them to be the agent of change. Through our leadership, interactive presentations and hands-on activities we are CHANGING THE CONVERSATION.

Overview of the Engineering Ambassadors Program

Ambassadors in Action The Engineering Ambassador Network is a student-led initiative to promote engineering.

Student representatives visit local and regional K-12 schools, everywhere from Omaha to Lincoln, York to Hastings and to Kansas, Iowa and beyond. Interactive presentations and hands-on activities are delivered in a variety of fashions to learners in K through 12 educational environments. As a result, school students’ eyes are opened to the many exciting opportunities found in engineering while Ambassadors show that engineering degrees are feasible (and enjoyable!) and involve more than meets the eye.

Engineering Ambassadors are students who enjoy talking with students while answering questions, providing advice, and sharing their passions about their majors. The presentations are strictly limited to engineering outreach and are not recruitment 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 K-12 teacher, a career guidance counselor or are involved in after school programs and wish to schedule an Engineering Ambassador visit, complete the Engineering Ambassador registration form. We look forward to hearing from you.
Had that ambassador never talked to my class, I never would have known about architectural engineering and can assure you I would be spending my undergraduate years somewhere else.
