Congratulations to the Rutgers 4-H STEM Ambassador Team
November 18, 2020
The Rutgers 4-H STEM Ambassador Program was established in 2009 by a team of faculty and staff from multiple SEBS/NJAES departments and units. Since then, this dedicated team has learned how to utilize the strengths and resources of each member to best serve traditionally underserved urban youth throughout the state to enrich their interest and competency in science, technology, and engineering. Using the diverse skills and interests of the team along with their shared commitment to the program’s vision and objectives, they have continually refined the STEM Ambassador program over the past 12 years. It is now a nationally recognized model that has been shared through several publications and has been replicated in other states. The team has successfully engaged collaborators from inside and outside the university, across multiple campuses and schools. They are currently designing additional online modules to support the program.
