The RPI Engineering Ambassadors (EAs) are a group of RPI engineering students devoted to inspiring younger students with what they are learning in their chosen major including the newest technological breakthroughs, and the real-world challenges yet to be overcome to better our world. The RPI EAs visit public and private K – 12th grade classrooms and support Afterschool & Saturday morning science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) clubs. We share presentations and incorporate engaging hands-on activities of real-world applications of STEM-related topics that students learn in their classrooms.
Our presentations implement a new award-winning style that pushes the boundaries of traditional PowerPoint and engage the students in hands-on activities that complement the topics while also introducing team building and problems solving skills. We also support general panel discussions that provide an opportunity for pre-college students to ask questions of the RPI EAs about engineering, college, jobs, and internships, etc.
