The RPI Engineering Ambassadors (EAs) are a group of RPI engineering students devoted to inspiring younger students with what they learn in their respective majors while also educating them on the latest technological breakthroughs and real-world challenges. The RPI EAs visit public and private K – 12th-grade classrooms and support Afterschool & Saturday morning science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) clubs. In the classroom, the EAs share presentations and incorporate engaging hands-on activities that show the real-world applications of STEM.
Our presentations implement a truly creative, award-winning style that pushes the boundaries of traditional PowerPoint and engages the students in activities that complement the topics, introduce team-building skills, and challenge the students in problem-solving. We also support general panel discussions that provide an opportunity for pre-college students to ask questions to the RPI EAs about engineering, college, jobs, internships, and more.
