About the Engineering Ambassadors

RPI Engineering Ambassadors (EA) program is managed through the School of Engineering – Educational Outreach Center. EAs are an assembly of highly motivated students that are focused on inspiring a younger audience to explore the role of engineers in society.

We participate in an extensive communications and professional development training to learn the techniques that enable us to develop engaging presentations, hands-on demonstrations to take in to classrooms. EAs participate in 12 – 15 full day visits into regional middle and high school classrooms throughout the academic year and encourage over 3000 students to consider careers in the areas of science, technology and engineering.

"Although I have just started my journey in this program, I can already see the benefits that it has. My presentation skills have significantly improved and I have gained so much more confidence in my public speaking. Through hearing and other presentations and creating my own, I have learned so much about different engineering topics that I wouldn't have known about otherwise. "
