Our Mission
Nebraska's Engineering Ambassadors Network mission is to redefine the conventional ideas surrounding science, technology, engineering, and math. Through engaging presentations and hand-on activities, we challenge K-12 youth (particularly underrepresented groups) to dream of a better world and to embrace roles as agents of change.

Overview of the Engineering Ambassadors Program
Ambassadors in Action: 2 Ambassadors giving a presentation on Engineering the Human Body: Tissue Engineering The Engineering Ambassador Network (EAN) is a national professional development program with an outreach mission to promote engineering.

The engineering ambassadors (EAs) are talented undergraduate student leaders from the College of Engineering. They are trained extensively in communication and leadership skills, which they use for outreach to the K-12 community throughout Nebraska. Visits consist of interactive, engaging, presentations on an engineering topic paired with hands-on activities, and are delivered in a variety of fashions to learners in K through 12 educational environments. We seek to share the impact of engineering on the health, happiness, and safety of our world, as well as inspire youth with the amazing opportunities engineering offers.

EAs are students who enjoy talking with youth 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 EAN visit, complete the Engineering Ambassador request form. We look forward to hearing from you.
